Call for Award Nominations 


The Missouri Prairie Foundation (MPF), its Grow Native! program, and the Missouri Invasive Plant Task Force (MoIP), which MPF administers, is now accepting nominations for its MPF awards (prairie pioneer, prairie professional, prairie communicator, prairie volunteer, and prairie landowner); Grow Native! awards, and the MoIP Invasive Plant Action Award.

One need not be a member of MPF to be nominated for an award. Current MPF board members are not eligible to receive an award. If you nominated someone in the past who was not selected for an award, we encourage you to renominate that individual. Nominations for the MPF awards and Grow Native! awards must be received by June 15, 2020. Nominations for the MoIP award must be received by August 1, 2020

MPF and Grow Native! Native Plant Pioneer Awards will be announced and presented at the Missouri Prairie Foundation’s Annual Dinner in Jefferson City, MO on August 8, 2020. The Grow Native! Ambassador Award will be presented at the Grow Native! Professional Member Conference in November 2020. The MoIP Award will be presented at a venue of the awardee’s choice.

Please note: we have added an additional award category for our 20th anniversary: the Grow Native! Native Plant Protector Award.
