Candidates sought for annual conservation awards
The conservation awards program will again be held in Jewell County according to Sandra Wick, K-State Research and Extension, Post Rock District agriculture agent, who serves as chairman of the committee to select candidates for awards.
"This program is being sponsored by the Kansas Bankers Association," said Wick. This year the KBA, K-State Research and Extension, and the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism are proud to announce six award categories including energy conservation, water quality, water conservation, soil conservation, windbreaks and wildlife habitat. The awards will be presented at the Jewell County Conservation District annual meeting.
The purpose of this program is to stimulate a greater interest in the conservation of the agricultural and natural resources of Kansas by giving recognition to those farmers and landowners who have made outstanding progress in practicing conservation on their farms. Each year more than 200 Kansas producers and landowners are recognized for their efforts.
Nominations can be made by any person in the county. The nomination forms and more information are available from either the Jewell County Conservation District office or the Mankato office of the Post Rock Extension District and are due by Nov. 3. Completed forms should be returned to the conservation district office or the extension office. The wildlife award should be sent to the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism district biologist by Nov. 3.
