Nominate Your Hero

In 2012, the NCR-SARE Administrative Council created the NCR-SARE Hero Recognition to bring awareness of, recognize, and pay tribute to those who have made significant contributions to NCR-SARE.

Coordinated by the NCR-SARE Alumni Organization, this recognition will acknowledge the leadership, vision, contributions, and impact that these heroes have made in the field of sustainable agriculture in the region.


To be nominated for this recognition, a person must have demonstrated:

  1. Service to NCR-SARE and/or national SARE
  2. Leadership in sustainable agriculture locally and regionally
  3. Lasting impacts on sustainability in the North Central region

Recommendation and Selection

  • Recommendations may be submitted by anyone
  • The NCR-SARE Alumni Heroes Committee reviews and forwards recommendations to the NCR-SARE Administrative Council
  • Recommendations received will be kept on file for consideration in future years

A Heroes recommendation form can be found online. If you would like this recommendation form in a different format, contact the NCR-SARE office.
