Agriculture Advocate Award 2013
Sonja Johnson, Fallon, Nevada
Sonya Johnson has been an advocate for agriculture for over 30 years and is still going strong! She began taking agriculture into the local classrooms when her five daughters were students in elementary school. Since those early days, Sonya has logged many miles in her vehicle educating youth and the public via workshops, at the Farm Festival in Las Vegas, at schools including a remote school serving an Indian reservation, and to children of mine workers. In 2010, Sonja was recognized as the outstanding Nevada Ag in the Classroom volunteer by the Nevada Agriculture Foundation.
