In a recent release, the American Soybean Association (ASA) has announced a new line up of recognition award categories for 2018.
These awards recognize the significant, lasting contributions that volunteer leaders have made to the soybean industry.
According to the release, there are now three new recognition award categories:
- ASA Outstanding State Volunteer Award-Recognizes the dedication and contributions of volunteers in any area of the state association operation.
- ASA Distinguished Leadership Award –Distinguished and visionary leadership of ASA or a state soybean association is recognized with this award to either a soybean grower-leader or association staff leader with a least five-years of leadership service.
- ASA Pinnacle Award-An industry-wide recognition of those individuals who have demonstrated the highest level of contribution and long-term leadership within the soybean family and industry.

Winners will be notified in advance and provided with financial assistance to defray the cost of attendance. The Commodity Classic runs from Tuesday, February 27 to Thursday, March 1st, 2018.
