Hereford Woman Nominations due Sept. 15, 2017

View guidelines The National Hereford Women organization (NHW) feel that many women across our country do an outstanding job of promoting Herefords and that they should be recognized. One outstanding woman will be recognized at our annual meeting during the American Royal Stock Show in Kansas City. Her name will be added to a new perpetual plaque in the American Hereford Association building. This award has nothing to do with geography or regions. Nominations can come from anyone in the Hereford industry and can be submitted through the State Hereford Auxiliaries/ Poll-ette organizations or directly to the NHW. A written endorsement (Letter of Recommendation) for the nominee to the NHW Outstanding Hereford Woman committee chairperson must be postmarked September 15 each year or received by email or fax by that date. The NHW will have a panel of judges evaluate the nominees and choose an award recipient. Selection will be based on the accomplishments in promoting Hereford cattle or the beef industry through the media or other organizations or with their own Hereford operation. Outstanding leadership in a state Hereford Women’s or Poll-ette organization or in the NHW, hospitality, membership, youth activities such as scholarship programs, queen programs, ways and means, publicity and other related activities in the state/national arenas will be considered.
