NDSU Extension agents are recognized for their efforts.

North Dakota State University Extension agents and a specialist were recognized for their work at the recent National Extension Association of Family and Consumer Sciences (NEAFCS) annual conference in Hershey, Pa.

Two also were elected to board positions.

Julie Garden-Robinson, food and nutrition specialist; Cindy Klapperich, family and community wellness agent in Sargent County; and Kristi Berdal, former family and community wellness agent in Nelson and Steele counties, received a second-place Central Region Communications Award in the educational curriculum package category for the Healthwise for Guys program. Healthwise for Guys provides health information for adult males in rural areas primarily working in agriculture.

Garden-Robinson also was a member of the North Central Region Food Safety Team, which received a first-place Multistate Collaboration Award in the North Central Region and nationally for its work in food preservation education throughout five states.
