She works every aspect of the farm, keeps everyone on task, and even advocates for the industry she loves. Farm moms are amazing women, and Monsanto Company wants to continue recognizing their efforts. As a result, the company today announced that nominations are now open in its search for the next America’s Farmers Mom of the Year.
Nominations for the contest, which is in its fifth year, will be open from February 27 – March 31, 2014. Anyone can nominate their favorite farm mom for a chance to win up to $10,000 – whether it’s their own mom, sister, aunt, daughter, friend or community member.
“Last year we received nominations from 48 different states – all featuring wonderful stories of active and empowered women who make a positive impact on their families, farms and communities,” says Jessica Simmons, Corporate Marketing Director for Monsanto. “We know there are still so many great stories out there to share and more women to recognize, so we want to hear from you.”
