Nominate Your WFAN “Sustainable Farming Mom of the Year” by May 7!

Have you seen the hoopla lately from Monsanto about nominating candidates for their “Farmer Mom of the Year?” They’re giving away $5,000 to five lucky winners. Interestingly, nominees aren’t eligible unless they raise a certain number of acres of commodity crops or livestock. Anybody notice which farmers that leaves out?

In response, WFAN is offering a chance for you to nominate candidates for “Sustainable Farming Mom of the Year,” to honor the mothers in your life, biological or spiritual, who have set examples or guided you along your path to supporting sustainable, healthy food systems.

Send your nomination to us by emailing a description of why you think your nominee should be recognized for Mother’s Day (May 9). WFAN will choose one nominee to feature in a summer WFAN News profile, but ALL nominees will be featured on our website starting on Mother’s Day.

Don’t forget to send photos if you can! Email nominations to us by Friday, May 7.
