Congratulations to the 2017 Purdue Women in Agriculture Award Winners!


Annually, the Purdue Women in Agriculture Team recognizes Indiana women who are leaders and innovators and have contributed to the success of Indiana Agriculture.  The awards were presented on August 17 as part of the lieutenant governor's Celebration of Agriculture program during the Indiana State Fair.

Jane Hardesty of Indianapolis, state conservationist with the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Natural Resource Conservation Service, was named winner of the Leadership Award, presented annually to a woman for outstanding achievements in agribusiness or policymaking positions.

Carrie Vollmer-Sanders, nutrient strategy manager for The Nature Conservancy's North America Agriculture Program and a member of a northeast Indiana family farm, received the Achievement Award, honoring women who are directly involved in a farming operation.

help families prevent the frustration from developing.
