Conservation award nominations sought

The Conservation Awards Program will once again be held in Osage County. The program is sponsored by the Kansas Bankers Association, K-State Research and Extension, and the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks and Tourism, and presents awards in six categories: Energy conservation, water quality, water conservation, soil conservation, windbreaks and wildlife habitat. This year’s local sponsoring bank is Citizens State Bank, Lyndon.

The purpose of the program is to stimulate a greater interest in the conservation of agricultural and natural resources of Kansas. Each year more than 200 Kansas producers and landowners are recognized through this program. Nominations for these awards can be made by any person in the county.

Nomination forms are available at the Frontier Extension District, Osage County Conservation District, or Citizens State Bank, all in Lyndon. For more information, contact the Frontier Extension District at 785-828-4438. Nominations are due by Friday, Oct. 18.

Upon receipt of the nomination forms, a committee chaired by Rod Schaub, Frontier District Extension, will select this year’s winners. Winners will be recognized at the Osage County Conservation District’s annual meeting next year.
