A combination of public votes and USFRA judges’ scores will determine the winners, who will be announced on November 12, 2014, during a press conference at the National Association of Farm Broadcasting Convention (NAFB) in Kansas City.

Winners will serve in multiple high-visibility roles on behalf of USFRA, participating in a number of activities including national media interviews, advertising and public appearances. Winners will receive a $15,000 stipend to help cover the costs of being away from their operations. They’ll also receive professional media/speaker training and full support from USFRA through their yearlong tenure.
