VanDeWalle Earns Awards

Recently, Brandy VanDeWalle, Extension Educator in Geneva attended the annual meeting for Professional Improvement Conference for the National Association of County Agricultural Agents (NACAA) in Tulsa, Okla., on July 11-13.

The mission of the National Association of County Agricultural Agents (NACAA) is to further the professional improvement of its members, communication and cooperation among all extension educators and provide for enhancement of the image of extension and the development of personal growth opportunities for extension professionals.

VanDeWalle had an abstract approved for an Extension education poster, which is a professional poster describing the impacts of an Extension program. Eighty posters from across the United States were judged, with Brandy’s rating in second place. A small awards breakfast was hosted by Syngenta, who sponsored the awards.

On the state level VanDeWalle also won Best Extension Fact Sheet and Best Program Promotional Sheet in the NACAA Communications Contest.
