Applications are being accepted for the 2020 Hardin County Agriculture Hall of Fame through Thursday, Oct. 15, according to Mark Badertscher of the Hardin extension office.

Nominees must have made their major contribution to agriculture primarily as a result of being born, growing up, living in, or working in Hardin County, Ohio.

Last year one of those honored was Madelyn Lowery, an ONU alumnae. She joined Dean and Barbara Dulin, Fred Rarey and Mark Watkins as 2019 honorees.

Outstanding agriculturalists may be nominated by individuals or organizations. Nomination forms are available at the Hardin County OSU Extension office or on the Hardin County OSU Extension website at hardin.osu.edu.

The purpose of the Hardin County Agriculture Hall of Fame is to recognize outstanding contributions to agriculture by Hardin County residents. 

Annual awards will be made to men or women who have been instrumental to the success and excellence of agriculture, either as a farmer or in an agricultural related field.

"We desire to honor and give public recognition to those who have brought distinction to themselves, have made outstanding contributions to their professions, and whose community involvement has served as a stimulus to others," said Badertscher.

This year's selection will be honored at the Agriculture Hall of Fame Awards Banquet, Tuesday, Dec. 1.
