- The National Association of Plant Breeders (NAPB) is pleased to announce its Awards Program. This year (2010) the NAPB is sponsoring two awards that will be presented at our Annual Meeting.
- Early Career Scientist Award - recognizing a successful individual active in the plant breeding field.
- Lifetime Achievement Award - recognizing an individual who has given distinguished long-term service to the plant breeding field in such areas as research, education, outreach and leadership.
- These awards will highlight the achievements of individuals and are not based on the nature or source of employment. The nominee does not have to be a member of the NAPB.
- A description of each award and the procedures for nominating a candidate are included with this announcement and on our website. Annual NAPB Meeting information can also be found at the meeting site http://2010plantbreedingmeeting.eventbrite.com.
