Seven awardees will be honored at the 2019 Dakota Conference on Rural and Public Health. Submit your nominations in any of these award categories:
• Outstanding Rural Health Provider

• Outstanding Rural Health Program
• Outstanding Rural Health Volunteer
• Outstanding Rural Educator/Mentor
• Emerging Rural Leader
• Legislator of the Year
Individuals who nominate a selected awardee will be responsible for coordinating a very brief video that demonstrates why the awardee is deserving of the award. The video also gives the awardee an opportunity to speak to their work and thank and acknowledge colleagues, family, etc. Center for Rural Health staff will record the video footage and the footage will be edited to create a 3-5 minute video that will be shown at the awards banquet.
The awards will be presented at the Dakota Conference on Rural and Public Health, which will be held June 11-13, 2019 at the Clarion Hotel & Convention Center in Minot, North Dakota. Deadline for submission of award nominations is February 1, 2019 at 12:00 pm Central.
