Nominations are open for the 2018 Borlaug CAST Communication Award, an honor that recognizes professionals actively working in the agricultural, environmental, or food sectors who are promoting agricultural science in the public policy arena. This award has become an influential component in the efforts to keep agricultural issues and programs in the public eye and in front of national and world policymakers.
Organized by the Council for Agricultural Science and Technology, the award carries on the legacy of Dr. Norman Borlaug. Stakeholders in the CAST organization have special insights into the world of agriculture, and with this open nomination process, you have a chance to get actively involved.
The award winner will receive a bronze sculpture, an honorarium, and the opportunity to give a presentation at a CAST award ceremony during the 2018 World Food Prize Symposium.
Access nomination forms on the website.
