AKSARBEN Foundation Accepting Applications for
Nebraska Pioneer and Nebraska Heritage Awards
AKSARBEN Foundation is currently accepting applications for the annual Nebraska Pioneer and Heritage Farm Awards. Sponsored by AKSARBEN Foundation and the Nebraska Farm Bureau, this program recognizes farm families in Nebraska whose land has been owned by members of the same family for 100 and 150 years. Applications are available via:
•Email: Jody Siedelmann at Siedelmannj@aksarben.org
•Phone: 402-554-9600, ext. 107
•Mail: 6910 Pacific St, Ste 102, Omaha, NE 68106
Each family may receive one award at a time. So families can apply for either the 100 year or the 150 year award.
Applicants can print the application and complete all blank lines on the upper portion of the form. You may use either the back side or a second sheet to provide a brief history of the farm or ranch heritage.
It is critical that the farm or ranch’s historical information is factual. AKSARBEN Foundation asks that each applicant be approved by their local Fairboard. Applications are due by April 30 for approval, to the Sheridan County Ag Society, PO Box 401, Gordon, NE 69343, or e-mailing your application to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Families will be awarded during the 2016 Sheridan County Fair and Rodeo during a brief trophy presentation with local Farm Bureau representatives.
