NDSU Celebrates 42 Years of Excellence in Agriculture and Bison Athletics
The 42nd annual Harvest Bowl program at North Dakota State University will be held Nov. 6 and 7.
Highlights of the event include a Harvest Bowl dinner and awards program on Nov. 6 at the Fargo Ramada Plaza and Suites and the Harvest Bowl football game between NDSU and Western Illinois on Nov. 7. Also on Nov. 7, as part of Harvest Bowl, honorees will participate in educational sessions and tours on the NDSU campus.
As the state’s land-grant university, NDSU plays a major role in contributing knowledge through research, academic programs and the Extension Service. More than 2,700 agriculturists have been recognized and more than $130,000 in scholarships have been awarded to NDSU student athletes who are studying agriculture, business or premed and come from an agricultural background.
The NDSU Harvest Bowl program recognizes the success, dedication and hard work of outstanding agriculturists in 53 counties in North Dakota and several counties in Minnesota.
An agribusiness award recipient is chosen annually. This award recognizes individuals who have distinguished themselves in the field of agriculture and business in North Dakota and beyond.
Lynden Johnson, executive vice president of CHS Country Operations, a Fortune 100 company, will receive the 2015 award.
