Honorary Angus Foundation

 

In 1985, the National Junior Angus Association initiated the Honorary Angus Foundation to recognize and show appreciation to those who have shown extraordinary interest and support for young members of the American Angus Association. In 1985, the NJAA Board of Directors honored seven Angus breeders as the first inductees of the Honorary Angus Foundation. In subsequent years, a maximum of three inductees will be honored annually.

 

Any member of the American Angus Association is eligible to nominate individuals or organizations for the Honorary Angus Foundation.

 

Application forms for nominations to the Honorary Angus Foundation are available from the Junior Activities Department and are due March 1 of each year.
