As they do every year in early April, members of the Iowa Agricultural Extension Association recently came to Ames for their spring meeting at Iowa State University. They attended a couple days of training and information sessions, to get updated and learn what’s new in their area of expertise.
On one of the evenings the membership business meeting is held, and winners of the IAEA annual communications awards are announced.
Wallaces Farmer magazine is a long-time sponsor of the annual communications awards presented by IAEA. The recognition goes to IAEA members who submit entries of their work in various categories, which are judged. The state winners receive a cash award, and their entries are then advanced to regional competition sponsored by the National Association of County Agricultural Agents.
