Do you know a student who is interested in the maple industry? Did you know that they could win an award for that interest? Every year, the Walter A. Felker Award is given to a young man or woman with the intent to promote and encourage an interest in the production and marketing of high quality maple products.
The award is named in honor of Walter A Felker, a former director of the Bureau of Markets at the Department of Agriculture. Mr. Felker was instrumental in the formation of the NHMPA in 1943 and was the association’s secretary until his death in 1946.
The recipient of the award receives an engraved plaque to recognize their achievement as well as a $100.00 cash prize. Applications can be downloaded below or obtained from Don Lassonde 456-6052 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Robyn Pearl 225-3757 or email@example.com. Details about the project are outlined on the application. This is a great way to involve young members of our community in our long standing traditions.
