The Board of Directors for the Colorado Young Farmers Educational Association are pleased to announce the continuation of the CYFEA Membership and Sponsor Recognition Awards. The purpose of these annual awards are to recognize outstanding CYFEA Chapters, their membership, and associated agri-businesses and individuals, that have engaged with or influenced in a positive way the state Association and our agricultural community service programs. These annual awards are for achievements during the past year(s) and are judged by the CYFEA Recognition Awards Committee.
There are seven Chapter Membership award categories: Chapter Advisor, Chapter Member, Chapter, Chapter Community Service, Agri-Service, Agri-Business, and Outstanding Young Farmer. There are also “Influential Individual” awards given on an occasional basis, usually every other year.
The CYFEA Recognition Award applicants must be a member of a CYFEA Chapter in good standing. The award application forms are available under “Recognition Awards” header. The selection criteria is listed on each award application. CYFEA State Institute attendance is expected for the Chapter Advisor, Chapter, Chapter Member awards, and Outstanding Young Farmer awards.
