About PA-WAgN Awards

Every year at PA-WAgN’s annual symposium, we honor women, businesses and organizations that exemplify PA-WAgN’s mission to support women in agriculture. The Wagoner Award honors an individual who drives PA-WAgN forward through their work, and the Bolster Award honors an individual, organization, or business that has helped bring a wider recognition of the importance of women as farmers and as growers to their communities, governments, and the agricultural industry.
