If you know a farm mom who contributes in exceptional ways to her family and local agricultural community, then nominate her to be Farm Mom of the Year.
The program recognizes the women that are working hard to help feed the world on farms across the country. The deadline to nominate a farm mom is April 23. Online voting takes place at AmericasFarmers.com, which is organized by American Agri-Women. The winner will be announced on Mother's Day. Five regional winners and one national winner will be selected to receive $5,000 prizes, and the national winner also receives an additional $5,000.
The contest is sponsored by Monsanto.
