Distinguished Service Award

This award should be presented to a person who has given exemplary service to the turfgrass industry in the state of Iowa. This award should be considered a long-term achievement award.

Nominations for this award may come from any member of the Iowa GCSA. A short bio on each candidate should accompany each nomination. Each nomination will be submitted to the Board of Directors before the Iowa GCSA Board Meeting in November.

Iowa GCSA Board Members, their immediate family members, or current staff members are not eligible.
