Seeking 2017 “Teacher of the Year” Nominations

 The Nevada Cattlemen’s Association has started their fifteenth annual quest for “Teacher of the Year” candidates. We are asking for your help in soliciting nominations from any member of the Nevada Cattlemen’s Association, Nevada CattleWomen’s Association, Nevada WoolGrowers Association, Nevada Farm Bureau Federation, a presently employed Nevada teacher, or the Principal of the school which employs the nominee. The nominations must be an elementary, junior high, or high school teacher, who incorporates agriculture into their regular curriculum (not including Agricultural Education teachers). For example, a teacher who teaches a one week segment on agriculture and its importance to Nevada. Nominees may also include teachers considered in previous years but were not selected for the award. The deadline for submitting nominations is October 20, 2017. Accepted nominations include an NCA Teacher of the Year Application Form and an attached outline of the nominee’s curriculum that has integrated a unit about agriculture.

The winner of this award will receive a $1000 school supply stipend, donated by the Nevada Agriculture Foundation. The award recipient will also be recognized during the Nevada Cattlemen’s Association’s annual awards banquet on December 5th in Elko, NV at the Elko Convention Center.

Anyone may submit a nomination form which is available HERE, or by sending an e-mail request to nca@nevadabeef.org, or by calling (775) 738-9214.
