The Louisiana Agriculture Hall of Distinction is still accepting nominations through Nov. 19 for its induction ceremony, which will be held March 7, 2019, at the L’Auberge Hotel in Baton Rouge. 

The nomination form can be found online at  or through any parish LSU AgCenter extension office.

The nomination form should include the nominee’s major contributions to Louisiana agriculture, any leadership roles, honors and awards received by the nominee, and significant civic and public service accomplishments performed by the nominee.  

A joint effort of the LSU AgCenter, Louisiana Radio Network, Louisiana Farm Bureau Federation and the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry, the Louisiana Agriculture Hall of Distinction honors individuals who have made significant contributions to agriculture or agriculture-related industries. Nominations can represent farming, ranching, forestry, aquaculture, fisheries, education or agribusiness. 

Last year, Margie Yates Jenkins and the late Pierre “Pete” Lanaux were inducted into the Hall of Distinction.
