The award was established in memory of Obie Snider of Bedford County, a founding father of the All-American Dairy Show, and recognizes an individual who places significant value in service to the industry and community and displays high standards of conduct.

Evans farms 245 acres and milks a registered herd of Ayrshires. For 33 years, he and his family have traveled to Harrisburg, bringing a quality show string of registered Ayrshires to compete in the All-American Ayrshire shows.
