This is a highly competitive and very prestigious national award and we here at Iowa State are very proud of them.
The winning field is selected by a panel of 11 judges who independently score each entry based on the playability and appearance of the playing surfaces, innovative solutions employed, effective use of budget, and the development and implementation of a comprehensive, sound agronomic program.
The presentation of the award will be made at the STMA annual awards banquet on Fri., Jan. 18, 2013, held at the Ocean Center and the Hilton Daytona Beach in Daytona Beach, Fla.
