RNAS North East Awards Scheme 2012

The Royal Northern Agricultural Society is currently looking for nominations for the North East Awards Scheme 2012.

The annual awards see the Society bring together a panel from a range of leading organisations in the NE to help it to honour individuals who have been nominated for outstanding service to agriculture.

Anyone may put forward nominations and four people from those nominated are selected. The presentations, made in association with key sponsors, are highlights of a very popular social event in the farming year, the Royal Northern Awards Lunch in early November.  On this distinguished occasion, the Society also recognises a trio of the most promising agricultural students and apprentices.

The 2012 closing date for receipt of nominations and citations by the RNAS Secretary is 9 July. The four categories are:

1. The “Pubic Award” will be made to a public figure or personality for Services to Agriculture.
2. The “Local Award” will be made to a non-public figure who has in their own way made an outstanding contribution to progress in the Industry.
3. The “David Argo Award” will be made to an ‘unsung hero’ employed in the agricultural sector who merits particular recognition but who might not qualify for the above awards.
4. The “Under 35 Award” will be made to someone in that age group who had shown significant achievement and contribution in agriculture.

Nominations for the above awards should be accompanied by supporting citations stating which Award they are for. For further details or to submit a nomination, please contact Alison Argo at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

The 2012 RNAS Awards Luncheon is on Friday, 2nd November 2012 in The Thistle Aberdeen Airport Hotel, Argyle Road, Dyce at 12 for 12.30pm. Anyone may attend the lunch by advance booking and anyone wishing to attend, should contact Alison Argo at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
