KySTMA Dr. AJ Powell Field of the Year Award

Introducing the Dr. AJ Powell Field of the Year Award Program!

The KySTMA Field of the Year Award is named in honor of Dr AJ Powell.  Dr Powell has had some type of influence, either directly or indirectly, on every athletic field built in the Commonwealth of Kentucky in the last 30 years.  His shared knowledge and passion for sports turf management is still very much alive today and we feel this Field of the Year Award is a great way to honor his legacy around the state.  One award will be given annually to a field managed by a KySTMA member.  The award winner will be given a plaque, a year of free membership in the KySTMA, and potentially more. The winner will be announced during the Annual UK Turf and Landscape Short Course the following February.
