In years past, this event serves to recognize those who have gone above and beyond in advocating the importance of agriculture to the economic, environmental and social well-being of the state of Oregon. Award winners are voted on by the Oregon Aglink Board of Directors each spring.
This years event will take place November 19, 2021. Mark your calendars now!
Supporters will always have an opportunity to sponsor and participate in the success of Denim & Diamonds! For in-person events, sponsorships include purchasing tables for your company or group. For remote events, as in 2020, we sold Watch Party sponsorships where remote attendees received packages with Oregon-grown beverages and charcuterie fixings plus other goodies to make their own party at home!
Each year Oregon Aglink gives two awards out, based on nominations from the public which are then voted on by our Board of Directors. Nominations open in January and close in April each year.
Ag Connection Award – This honor is for an organization, business entity, or individual who has done an outstanding job connecting the public with agriculture.
Agriculturist of the Year – This award recognizes and honors an organization, business entity, or individual for an outstanding contribution to the agriculture industry as a whole.
