Hall of Fame
The Hall of Fame is important for recognizing the contributions of co-op pioneers and honoring those that have gone “above and beyond the call” in advancing the cooperative philosophy. The showcase display at the Kansas State Fairgrounds in Hutchinson, Kansas also plays a significant role in educating others about the uniqueness of the cooperative business model by highlighting the achievements of our state’s great co-op leaders and preserving our co-op history.
The “Century Co-op” award recognizes co-ops that have been serving members for 100 years, which is a testament to the lasting value of the cooperative business structure.
The Kansas Cooperative Council engages in several activities throughout the year to thank our members and help raise the profile of cooperatives in Kansas. We hope you also thinking of ways to promote your cooperative during Co-op Month.
