EXCELLENCE IN RANGELAND MANAGEMENT AWARD
The EXCELLENCE IN RANGELAND MANAGEMENT AWARD is a poster presentation and competition held at the Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida. This award honors exemplary rangeland management and recognizes the "best of the best" from among section-level Excellence in Rangeland Management Award winners. The award will be presented at the annual SRM awards ceremony.
The objective of the award is to demonstrate and publicize to the public, and other range managers, outstanding examples of management which result in long-term health of the range resource while providing efficient production of livestock, wood products, water, supporting wildlife, esthetic values, and other non-commodity values.
Sections are encouraged to submit poster presentations of recent winners (2 per year maximum) of their Excellence in Rangeland Management award or other suitable nominations, representing outstanding ranches or other land management operations.
The posters presented will be judged by the Awards Committee to determine which poster best conveys Excellence in Rangeland Management. Visit the SRM Awards website to learn more about qualifications and judging criteria for this poster contest.
