However a phone or email nomination at the county level is acceptable.

MN State Nominations please review the nomination process and criteria, complete the application and return to Cass County Agricultural Association, PO Box 428, Pine River, MN 56474. For additional questions please contact. Terri Foster at 218-821-0444.
