Annually, the Purdue Women in Agriculture (WIA) Team recognizes Indiana women who are leaders and innovators and have contributed to the success of Indiana Agriculture. Currently, the Purdue WIA Team is accepting applications for the 2017 Purdue Women in Agriculture Awards.
Nominees will be placed in either the Leadership or Achievement categories for award consideration as deemed appropriate by the WIA Team. Women who are interested in the award may nominate themselves, or be nominated by someone else.
Previous winners include women with integral roles in their personal and/or family farm business, corporate and non-profit leaders, educators, veterinarians, and women in public service roles.
Winners will be recognized at the Indiana State Fair and will receive a complimentary registration and overnight accommodations at the Midwest Women in Agriculture Conference in the
year after their award is presented.
