Ranching Woman of the Year
Each year. MSGA recognizes the Montana Ranching Woman of the Year. The annual award is presented to an MSGA member who has made great contributions to the Montana ranching community and has gone above and beyond to support their family and friends. Nominations are due October 31 and the recipient will be recognized at MSGA’s Annual Convention.
“Women are often the backbone of Montana’s ranching communities. These women often go above and beyond to support their immediate family members and pitch in whenever the need arises in their communities,” said Gene Curry, MSGA President from Valier. “We look forward to recognizing these accomplished women each year at our annual convention and thanking them for their hard work.”
Nomination letters submitted by family or close friends should identify a ranching woman, who is a member of Montana Stockgrowers, describe her role on the ranch, and the characteristics that set her apart when supporting the family and ranch, as well as describe her involvement in community efforts. Biographies should include the ranching woman’s hometown, family members, and number of years involved in ranching activities.
Along with the nomination biography, submissions should include photos depicting the ranching woman’s family, ranch and community involvement.
Nominations should be submitted to the Montana Stockgrowers office by October 31 each year via mail (420 N. California, Helena, MT 59601) or email (email@example.com). For more information contact the MSGA office at (406) 442-3420.
