Governor’s Excellence in Agriculture Partnership Award

The team at the Nebraska Corn Board—whether leadership, staff, or members—have been champions when it comes to growing Nebraska’s agriculture industry. The Nebraska Corn Board has been an incredible partner of the Nebraska Department of Agriculture to build relationships, engage international markets, and promote Nebraska agricultural products. They have been incredibly supportive in working to ensure that Nebraska is recognized as a state that can provide high-quality, reliable products to partners abroad, particularly in emerging markets such as Latin America and Southeast Asia where there is high growth potential.

Additionally, the Nebraska Corn Board has continually supported the education of Nebraska’s agricultural youth through their sponsorship of the Nebraska Agricultural Youth Institute (NAYI). Their generosity has allowed hundreds of students to attend NAYI at no cost throughout the years so that students have the opportunity to network with peers and learn about the careers available to them in the agricultural industry.
