CFB Emerging Leader Award:
The Emerging Leader Award is designed to honor one outstanding YF&R each year at the CFB Annual Meeting.

The attached documents include a quick overview of Emerging Leader Award rules, as well as a template for the application process.
AFBF Excellence in Agriculture Application:
The Farm Bureau Excellence in Agriculture Award Program is designed as an opportunity for Young Farmers & Ranchers, while actively contributing and growing through their involvement in Farm Bureau and agriculture, to earn recognition. Participants will be judged on their involvement in agriculture, leadership ability, involvement and participation in Farm Bureau and other organizations (i.e., civic, service and community).

AFBF Achievement Award Application:
The American Farm Bureau Federation Achievement Award Program is designed to recognize those Young Farmers & Ranchers that have excelled in their farming/ranching operations and honed their leadership abilities to superiority.
The contestants will be evaluated on a combination of their farming operation growth and financial progress of operation, FB Leadership, as well as leadership outside of Farm Bureau. More specifically, the judges will be looking for excellence in management, growth and scope of the enterprise and self-initiative that have been displayed throughout the operation. A contestant’s participation in Farm Bureau and other organizations is a definite point getter from the judges.
