Early History of the Section
Membership in Cereals & Grains Association at the local section level presents numerous opportunities for growth and involvement in the cereal processing field. Section meetings provide the perfect setting to become acquainted with others of similar technical interests. Members can add the Cincinnati Section when they join or renew their Cereals & Grains Association membership.
Best Student Poster Awards
Three cash awards will be awarded to students with best posters related to Eastern Soft Wheat at the Annual Meeting each year. Students must apply for the award when they submit their abstracts. Members from the Cincinnati Section will judge the posters that fall into this category at the annual meeting. The three cash awards are $500 for first place, $250 for second place, and $100 for third place.
