Mahoning County Agricultural Hall of Fame

About the Hall of Fame

Agriculture has been a cornerstone of the growth and development of Mahoning County since the county was formed in 1846. Those involved in agriculture have been a vital part of the community and its growth. The purpose of the Mahoning County Agriculture Hall of Fame is to recognize those who have made a significant impact on agriculture.

Annual awards will be made to men/women, husband and wife, and partnerships either as farmers or contributors through an agricultural related field. We desire to honor and give public recognition to those who have brought distinction to themselves, have made outstanding contributions to their professions, and whose community involvement has served as a stimulus to others.

How to Nominate Someone

Types of agricultural occupations of nominees may include farmers, agriculture teachers, agricultural extension agents, and agriculture business.

Selection will be based upon:

  1. Agricultural Occupation
  2. Community involvement
  3. Impact on the field of agriculture
  4. Significant agriculture contributions

A completed application will be held on file for consideration for three application years. After this time, if the nominee has not been selected, a new application may be completed and submitted. Applications will be reviewed the first Friday in June. Applications received after the first Friday in June are held for the following year.

The committee may make changes to the guidelines and policies of the Mahoning County Agriculture Hall of Fame as it deems necessary.

New inductees will be announced and recognized annually during the Canfield Fair at a time and location to be announced.
