(AUDUBON) An Audubon County farmer has won $5,000 through America’s Farmers Grow Communities, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund.
Todd Nelsen has selected the Audubon Recreation Foundation and the Audubon County Agricultural Society to receive the money.
America’s Farmers Grow Communities gives farmers the opportunity to win a $2,500 donation to direct to their favorite local nonprofit organizations. To further support counties that have been declared disaster areas due to drought by the USDA, winning farmers in those counties were able to double the donation. Audubon County was declared a disaster area by the USDA, giving Todd Nelsen the opportunity to place two $2,500 donations.
A check presentation will be held on January 22nd at 1:00 pm at the Audubon County Courthouse Supervisor’s Room.
