Who can submit a nomination? 

Anyone with a valid email address can submit a nomination. Please keep in mind, the quality of your submission is a major factor in determining the winner, so those with a strong relationship with their retail, namely growers, are at an advantage when describing the performance of their nominee.


Can I nominate an ag retail outside of my community? 

Yes! If you know of an ag retail in any of the eligible provinces that deserves to win, nominate them. 


What happens when I submit a nomination form? 

Once you submit your nomination, it will be sent to ADAMA for approval. If your nomination is approved, your retail will be added to the list of nominees on the website and be given its own individual nomination page. 


Can I edit my nomination once I’ve submitted it? 

No, once your nomination is submitted, you will not be able to edit it, so please make sure your nomination is the best it can be!


Can I nominate a retail that has already been nominated? 

Retails can be nominated multiple times, but ADAMA will only approve one nomination per retail. To improve your chances, get in contact with your retail and other customers to create the best nomination possible.

How can I get people to vote for my retail?
