JOHN HANNAH AWARD for PROGRAM EXCELLENCE

The John A. Hannah Award recognizes superior Extension programs that are developed and carried out by MSU Extension professional staff members (campus, district, and county) who are appointed by the MSU Board of Trustees. This most prestigious of MSU Extension awards recognizes the excellence of programs, not just individuals.

The award was established when Dr. Hannah retired as president of MSU. The members of MSU Extension’s professional associations voluntarily contributed funds for a “suitable memorial to Dr. Hannah that would encourage professional achievement among Extension staff.” The earnings from these gifts, plus any further gifts are used to support the award.

Programs that are developed and carried out by MSU Extension staff who are appointed by the MSU Board of Trustees are eligible for this award, and self-nominations are accepted. All programs must be current – that is, conducted within the past 18 months.  Nominees must possess the highest standards of integrity and character to positively reflect and enhance the reputation of MSU Extension. Recipients of this award may not be nominated again for four years.  The award is given by the Michigan Council of Extension Associations (MCEA), and the MCEA awards selection committee will review the nominations.

Please contact the current ESP President-Elect for SharePoint directions to submit a nomination.
