NDSU to Celebrate 46 Years of Excellence in Agriculture and Bison Athletics

The program recognizes the success, dedication and hard work of outstanding agriculturists in North Dakota and western Minnesota.

The 46th annual Harvest Bowl program at North Dakota State University will be held Nov. 8 and 9.

The NDSU Harvest Bowl program recognizes the success, dedication and hard work of outstanding agriculturists in 53 counties in North Dakota and 7 counties in western Minnesota.

Highlights of the event include a Harvest Bowl dinner and awards program Nov. 8 at the Delta by Marriott in Fargo, and the Harvest Bowl football game between NDSU and Western Illinois on Nov. 9.

Also on Nov. 9, 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 Extension. More than 2,700 agriculturists have been recognized and more than $285,000 in scholarships have been awarded to NDSU student athletes who are studying agriculture, business or premed, and come from an agricultural background.

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.

Former North Dakota State Senator, Bill Bowman, will receive the 2019 award.
