Your state, county or committee can show your support by participating in our award challenges!
The Apex Award
The Apex award is achieved when a state has donated 10% more to the Foundation than in the previous year. In 2016 32 state Farm Bureaus received Apex Awards:
In 2017, in honor of our 50th Anniversary, we challenge states to donate 12% more than they did in 2016!
The Scholar Award
The Scholar Award is given to 6 states – one from each member group – and is awarded to the state Farm Bureau with the highest total donations in that member group.
State Farm Bureaus receiving the 2016 Scholar Award are: Massachusetts, Montana, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Iowa and Illinois.
The Award of Excellence
The Award of Excellence is presented to a state Farm Bureau when all of the county Farm Bureaus and the state Farm Bureau donates to the Foundation. Delaware Farm Bureau received the Award of Excellence in 2016.
It is our hope that State and County Farm Bureaus accept the challenges to support the Foundation!
