Teacher of the Year Nominations Sought for 2024

The Nevada Cattlemen’s Association has started their annual quest for “Teacher of the Year” candidates and are asking for your help in soliciting nominations. The deadline for submitting nominations is May 1st, 2024.

Nominees must be an elementary, junior high, or high school teacher who incorporates agriculture into their regular curriculum. For example, a teacher who teaches a one-week segment on agriculture and its importance to Nevada. Current Agricultural Education teachers are not eligible. Nominees may also include teachers considered in previous years but were not selected for the award. Nominations must include a completed NCA Teacher of the Year Nomination Form (below) and an attached short essay describing why the teacher is being nominated.

The winner of this award will receive a $1,000 school supply stipend courtesy of the Nevada Agriculture Foundation. The award recipient will also be recognized during the 2024 Nevada Cattlemen’s Association Annual Awards Banquet. 

 Anyone may submit a nomination form which is available below.

For any questions, please contact the NCA office at 775-738-9214. Nominations may be submitted by email to [email protected] with “2024 Teacher of the Year Nomination” in the subject line; faxed to 775-738-5208; or sent by mail to Attn: Research & Education Committee, c/o Nevada Cattlemen’s Association, P.O.
