THE DON HILL LEGACY AWARD
Generously supported by Ruth Hill & Family
This annual award will recognize an individual farm business in Ontario who successfully applied on-farm innovation and ingenuity to effectively address an identified environmental risk associated with soil, water, air or biodiversity on their farm. Online entries will be received by Ontario Soil and Crop Improvement Association (OSCIA) throughout the year.
All entries received by December 1 of each year will be judged by the OSCIA Executive Committee using established evaluation criteria. A single winner will be announced the following February and profiled in the OSCIA newsletter, website and farm media*.
OSCIA wishes to sincerely thank the Community Foundation Grey Bruce and the Rural Institute of Ontario for their expert guidance and assistance which was essential in establishing the Don Hill Legacy Award. Individuals wishing to make a contribution to help sustain the Legacy Award are encouraged to approach the Community Foundation Grey Bruce in Owen Sound at http://www.communityfoundationgreybruce.com
* The winner will be asked to share a summary of their innovation at the OSCIA Annual Meeting in early February.
