Congratulations! Your application in the Mary W.

If this was a Team award, please notify your Team members, and extend my congratulations to them as well.

Regional awards will be presented at the Regional Awards Lunch on Tuesday, September 25 from 11:15 AM to 1:15 PM. National awards will be presented at the NEAFCS Awards Ceremony on Thursday evening, September 27th.
Your award is tied to a $425 Annual Session Scholarship. This means that your Annual Session registration will be reduced by that amount when you use the code indicated below. Annual Session registration will open June 1.
To apply your scholarship to your registration, complete the online registration form, and enter AWD425 at check out. This code will reduce your amount due by the scholarship amount. Please do not share this code with anyone, including any members of your team if a team entry.
Also, as stated in the awards manual, “If the applicant is not able to attend Annual Session the year the award is received the scholarship will be forfeited but the award certificate will still be given to the recipient.”
In the case of team awards, the scholarship will be given to the individual who completed the online award application (team leader). It will be the responsibility of the team leader to compensate other team members per agreement by the team.
