Eagle Bowl Farm Family Award

A stainless steel bowl is awarded by the BUTLER EAGLE to the Butler County Farm Family that participates to the greatest extent and with the highest degree of success in the Butler Farm Show. Consideration is given to the diversity of entries, not only quantity but quality and variety of exhibits and entries. Other important criteria include good sportsmanship and volunteerism, a high level of involvement by all members of the family in support of the Butler Farm Show. The award will be engraved with the name of the family which, in the judgment of the Directors of the Farm Show, excels on the extent and excellence of its competition. The award is made annually in recognition of the importance of the family as a farm production unit and as a home group. A family is defined as a father, mother, and unmarried children living at home. The same family may not win the award two successive years.
