Nominations open for the 2024 Alberta Ag Hall of Fame

The Alberta Agriculture Hall of Fame honours individuals who have advanced Alberta’s agriculture industries, food industries, and rural life. Albertans are encouraged to nominate an agricultural leader in their community.

Every two years, up to three individuals who have demonstrated exemplary leadership while making a provincewide impact on their industries are inducted.

RJ Sigurdson, Minister of Alberta Agriculture and Irrigation says he is continually impressed by the dedication and pride demonstrated by our agricultural and agri-food leaders.

“The Alberta Agriculture Hall of Fame gives community members the opportunity to recognize those leaders by nominating them for this prestigious award. I look forward to celebrating the 2024 inductees this fall,” says Minister Sigurdson.

Since its inception in 1951, the Hall of Fame has recognized 141 people who have made significant contributions to the agriculture and food industry, and to the development and sustainability of rural life in Alberta. Past recipients have included prolific researchers, visionaries in beef cattle breeding, groundbreakers in zero tillage, innovators in agri-foods, and passionate educators who have helped Albertans connect with their local food systems.

Nomination forms and a list of past inductees are available on alberta.ca. Nominations close on May 3. The 2024 Agriculture Hall of Fame inductees will be celebrated at an induction ceremony later this year.

About the Author

Kara grew up on a grain farm near Bow Island, Alberta. After attending SAIT and the University of Calgary — where she obtained a degree in communication and media studies, and a diploma in broadcast news — Kara began her professional career working in agricultural communications and agricultural journalism. Kara now resides near her family’s farm, raising a mix of livestock, consisting mostly of goats (because something has to eat all that kochia). Kara has a passion for storytelling, but even more so, asking the questions that matter. You can find her surrounded by farmers/ranchers and a cup of coffee — or at an upcoming ABP event!
