BMO Farm Family Awards Nomination Form

Nominations for the 2020 BMO Farm Family Awards are now closed. The deadline for eligible municipalities to nominate a farm family in their area is Tuesday, June 30, 2020.

Thank you to all who applied.


For 50 years, farm families from northern and central Alberta communities have been recognized as the recipients of the BMO Farm Family Award. The Northern and Central Agricultural Service Boards select outstanding families who best represent values of the family farm within their rural community. The award honours both their farming business practices and community involvement. Each recipient receives a commemorative gate sign and are honoured at the BMO Farm Family Awards Gala.
