The Richard R. Hill, Jr., Achievement Award was created as a tribute to Dr. Hill, who died in the spring of 1990. The award consists of a recognition plaque and $1,000 to assist the recipient in attending the NAAIC annual meeting.

Dr. Hill was a prominent researcher in genetics and plant breeding, but his interest in alfalfa was broad and extended into many areas of alfalfa production. Therefore, this award was created to recognize a worthy contributor for some recent, specific, and outstanding achievement in any area of alfalfa science or production. Examples of outstanding achievement include: new or innovative research, new or improved equipment, development of new characteristics in germplasms or varieties, improved pollination or germplasm collection, improved Rhizobium performance, dedicated service to societies, seed boards, or committees.

An emphasis should be placed on recent research, with completion of the achievement occurring within the past two years.

Requirements: three nominators and one supporting document (upload below).
