Nominations open for Farm Mom of the Year

Monsanto once again plans to recognize inspiring farm moms, and is accepting nominations for its 2018 America’s Farmers Mom of the Year contest. This year, 10 outstanding women, each representing a different region in the U.S., will be recognized as Farm Mom of the Year. Each winner will select a non-profit in their local community to receive $1,000.

Nominations are open through April 30. Entries will be accepted online or through the mail. Ten regional winners will be chosen and announced in May.

Anyone can nominate his or her favorite eligible farm mom by submitting a short essay of 150 words or less, why their nominee should be named Farm Mom of the Year. Nominees will be evaluated based on her role in her farm’s success, her engaging the community, her advocacy for modern agriculture and of course, how she handles her responsibilities as a parent.
