Recognize a Local Farm Star in Your Community!
Is there a farmer that you feel makes a difference in your community, whether through their endless dedication and effort, mentorship, support, achievements, or inspiration of overcoming adversity? Tell us by informing your NorthStar Genetics Seed Partner of their story – from mentorship and community involvement, to inspiring others through their examples of resilience. Your Seed Partner will be able to nominate Farm Stars, so they will need your suggestions!
From nominations received, four (4) NorthStar Genetics Community Star winners will be chosen throughout the NorthStar Genetics farming area. The winning Farm Stars and their respective NorthStar Genetics Seed Partner who nominated them will be recognized at an event hosted by NorthStar Genetics in their community in December 2017. Winners will receive a cash donation of $1,000.00 to a local community charity or organization of their choice, as well as receive a commemorative plaque.
We believe that farmers have always been Stars of hard work and integrity. Thank you for taking part and recognizing a deserving Farm Star in your community.
