ASA accepts applications for the Conservation Legacy Award program annually to honor these achievements. Winners are selected from four regions – the Midwest, Upper Midwest, Northeast and South. One recipient is named National Conservation Legacy Award Winner.
All regional award winners receive a trip to Commodity Classic, a magazine article, and a video featuring their farm and conservation practices. Award recipients may also receive the opportunity to apply for a grant to make additional conservation improvements to their operations.
Applications for the 2022 Conservation Legacy Awards are due Sept. 1, 2021. Questions regarding these awards may be directed to Michelle Hummel in the ASA office at 314-754-1328, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
