Northeast Nebraska Ag Banquet

The 2020 Ag Banquet has been cancelled due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 situation, but note that the Council will still be awarding scholarships.

Members of the Agri-Business Council of the Norfolk Area Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with the Madison Area Chamber of Commerce, celebrate northeast Nebraska’s #1 industry at their annual Northeast Nebraska Ag Banquet each June.

The event recognizes area producers and ag business in Madison, Antelope, Wayne, Pierce, Stanton, Boone and northern Platte counties for their contributions to the economic well-being of our communities. The banquet emphasizes the link between the business and agricultural communities. Open to the public, tickets are available through the Norfolk Chamber office. This annual event features a social hour, dinner, and a keynote speaker.

The primary focus of this event is to recognize and award area youth with continuing agri-business education scholarships. In the last five years, scholarships totaling $17,500 have been awarded to 24 deserving area high school seniors and college students. Several deserving students, as well as the previous year’s Norfolk Beef Expo scholarship recipient, will be presented 2020 Northeast Nebraska Ag Community Scholarship that evening. It is the Council’s goal to continue growing this event in order to increase the number and dollar amounts of scholarships awarded.

Awards will also be given to an area farm family/producer of the year and an area ag business of the year, which are selected from nominations.
