Ak-Sar-Ben Announces Open Nominations for Nebraska Pioneer Awards

The Knights of Ak-Sar-Ben Foundation and the Nebraska Association of Fair Managers announced today that nominations for the 56th annual Nebraska Pioneer Farm Awards, sponsored by the Nebraska Farm Bureau are now begin accepted. The program honors farm families in Nebraska whose land has been owned by members of the same family for 100 years or more.



To date, more than 8,000 families in all 93 Nebraska counties have been honored at various county fairs. Each honoree receives an engraved plaque and gatepost marker as permanent recognition of this milestone.

Nomination forms can be obtained from the local County Fair Board Office or by writing the Ak-Sar-Ben Pioneer Farm Awards, 8707 West Center Road, Suite 101, Omaha, NE 68124 or online at www.aksarben.org. All nominations must be received by the county fair board office in which the land is found no later than May 1, 2010.

This program is just one of those supported by the Knights of Ak-Sar-Ben Foundation which was founded in 1895 “To leverage collective business leadership to build a more prosperous Heartland.”
