Program Excellence Award applications by Sept. 15 (8/11/2017)

ex·cel·lence - “the quality of being outstanding or extremely good”

As you think about the past year, which team-based Extension program can be described with this word?

I’d venture many, and we want to applaud them all—the teams behind them, actually—at the 2017 Fall Extension and REC Conference this October.

To do that, we need applications for Program Excellence Awards. (That’s your cue.)

Extension is about teamwork, and anyone who has worked with others to design, deliver and evaluate an excellent county- or state-led program in the past year—agents…specialists…support staff…nutrition education assistants—is encouraged to apply. You’ll find everything you need under the 2017 Program Excellence Application heading at Take the Information link to find out what you’ll need for your application and the scoring criteria, and Online Application when you’re ready to do your application. If you have a question as you go, I’ll be glad to help.

The application deadline is Friday, Sept. 15, 2017.

Please encourage your colleagues to apply, and don’t be shy about applying directly for your own team. Teams chosen will receive a cash award, and we thank the Farm and Ranch Guide for their generous sponsorship.
