  • ASA Outstanding State Volunteer Award–Recognizes the dedication and contributions of volunteers in any area of the state association operation.
  • ASA Distinguished Leadership Award –Distinguished and visionary leadership of ASA or a state soybean association is recognized with this award to either a soybean grower-leader or association staff leader with a least five-years of leadership service.
  • ASA Pinnacle Award–An industry-wide recognition of those individuals who have demonstrated the highest level of contribution and long-term leadership within the soybean family and industry.

For more information about each of the award categories see the 2018 ASA Recognition Awards flyer.

All nomination forms must be submitted online. The deadline for submission is Oct. 27, 2017, at midnight. For more information and to view the nomination forms, click here. Anyone may complete and submit a nomination form. No self-nominations will be accepted. 

Recipients will receive their awards at the ASA Awards Banquet on Feb. 28, 2018, in Anaheim, Calif. at Commodity Classic, which runs Feb. 27-March 1, 2018. Winners will be notified in advance and provided with financial assistance to attend.
