Each year, we have the opportunity to recognize our colleagues and partners for their outstanding work at our Fall Extension Conference. Industry, businesses, local government, media and specialists outside of our organization are just a few examples of effective partners that help us better serve the people of Michigan. It is important that we acknowledge the work and outreach that we are able to accomplish because of these powerful partnerships. Also, internally making time to appreciate each other and our work is an important part of our organizational culture. We have a grand-scale opportunity to acknowledge each other’s efforts. We hope that you will find time to team up and work on a nomination or two for this year’s Fall Extension Conference awards.
The following is a list of awards. You can find their descriptions and accompanying forms on SharePoint here.

The Fall Extension Conference Awards Committee will meet in June to decide on award recipients who will be notified in early August. We look forward to honoring our colleagues and key partners with you in the fall.
