Nominations for the 2015 Kansas Bankers Association Conservation Awards Program are now being accepted. This year the Kansas Bankers Association, K-State Research and Extension, and the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism have announced six award categories: Energy Conservation, Water Quality, Water Conservation, Soil Conservation, Windbreaks, and Wildlife Habitat.
The purpose of this program is to stimulate a greater interest in the conservation of the agricultural and natural resources of Kansas by giving recognition to those farmers and landowners who have made outstanding progress in practicing conservation on their farms.
Each year over 200 Kansas producers and landowners are recognized through this program. Nominations can be made by any person in the county. They should be sent to the County Extension Agricultural Agent or the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism District Biologist by November 2, 2015.
The K-State Extension agent for Agriculture and Natural Resources, or the Extension Coordinator, is designated Chairperson of the committee to select persons to receive awards.
