The AgriBusiness Council of Greater Spokane Inc. will present its new “Excellence in Agriculture” Award during the 2014 Spokane Ag Expo and Pacific Northwest Farm Forum.

The selection committee considers several criteria:

• Innovation in agriculture.

• Economic and environmental stewardship.

• Contribution to agriculture.

• Impact on Agriculture.

• Industry Awareness and Outreach.

Nominations were gathered in November and narrowed to selected finalists, to be announced in late January, after press time. The winner will be announced during show week.
