The Pennsylvania Holstein Association is seeking nominations for the Distinguished Supporter Award. The award is presented annually to recognize an individual or company (not a dairy farmer/producer) who, through their work, has supported and enhanced the work and goals of the PA Holstein Association. The recipient must be living at the time of the nomination.

The association is also seeking nominations for its Hall of Fame Award. The Hall of Fame Award is presented annually to a member of the PA Holstein Association to recognize an individual or couple for their achievements and contributions to the Holstein industry as well as involvement and leadership in other agricultural and community activities.

The PA Holstein Association will be presenting the PA Holstein Pioneer Memorial Award as well. The award posthumously recognizes an individual not already in the PA Holstein Association Hall of Fame for their contributions to the Holstein industry at the local, state and national levels. This award will be selected by the Hall of Fame Committee and be awarded to no more than one person per year. Nominations can be made on behalf of former PA Holstein members who worked for the improvement of the Holstein breed and the association.

Applications should be completed and forwarded to the Pennsylvania Holstein Association, 839 Benner Pike, State College, PA 16801.
