Nominations are currently being sought for the 2020 Fulton County Agricultural Hall of Fame Award. Because the agricultural industry plays an important part in the lifestyle and economy of Fulton County the Agricultural Hall of Fame was organized in 1983. Being inducted into the Hall of Fame is the highest recognition awarded to members of the agricultural community who have made outstanding contributions to Fulton County agriculture and the county as a whole.
Qualifying recipients of the award would have made their major contribution in Ohio and have/had a long tenure in their field or endeavor, preferably 25 years or more and would include one or both:
1) A farmer or breeder who has made a major contribution to the land and the product hereof
2) Someone who has worked in an agriculture-related activity or agri-business.
Due to Covid-19, the 2020 Agricultural Hall of Fame award application deadline has been delayed to Monday, August 17. The Ag Hall of Fame awards will be announced virtually over the Labor Day Weekend and a late-fall reception is being planned for recipients.
Individuals or organizations who would like to make nominations can obtain application forms by clicking here or call the Fulton County OSU Extension Office 419-337-9210. Completed nominations should be mailed to OSU Extension-Fulton County, 8770 State Route 108, Suite A, Wauseon, OH 43567 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 17.
