Log In


The Cereals & Grains Association is proud of its members' many accomplishments that have advanced the association and the field of grain science. Help us recognize these individuals by nominating a fellow colleague to receive a prestigious Cereals & Grains Association award. All members are strongly encouraged to submit nominations for these awards at any time. All awards approved by the Board of Directors will be presented at the annual meeting. All nominations for awards are considered for three years if the nominee meets the award criteria. If a nomination is not successful in the first year, the nominator is encouraged to update the nomination materials if updates are needed for the following year. Award committees will have the prerogative of eliminating an individual who is not qualified for the award without that nomination being retained for three years.
