The Association of Women in Agriculture (AWA) welcomes all alumni to AWA Day, held Saturday, March 17, at the Lowell Center on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus.
The evening banquet and awards program is held in conjunction with the Alpha Gamma Rho - Iota Chapter's Founders Day. Festivities begin with a 5 p.m. reception, followed by a 6 p.m. banquet and program.
The program will feature multiple student scholarships and several special awards, including Outstanding Senior, Outstanding AWA Alumni and Outstanding Woman in Agriculture. Anniversary classes from 2007, 2002, 1992, and 1982 will also be recognized.
A silent auction will take place during the event to raise funds for student scholarships. Auction donations are currently being accepted. To donate, contact Cady Dueber at firstname.lastname@example.org or 651-792-5051.
In addition, a dessert auction will round out the meal, with funds raised supporting housing scholarships for students living in the AWA House.
