On May 25, all users of feed and fertilizer in North Carolina will have the opportunity to vote on continuing the Nickels for Know-How program at Cooperative Extension centers across the state. Since 1951, and through 12 previous referenda, Nickels has been approved by North Carolina citizens by an average 90 percent favorable vote. In addition, most of the state's research-based agricultural advances have at some point shared Nickels funds.

The Nickels program provides over $1.2 million annually to support the academic, extension and research programs in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Additional information on the Nickels program and the May 25 referendum can be found on the Nickels Web site: http://www.cals.ncsu.edu/advancement/nickels.htm.

Many thanks to county Extension directors and their staffs for carrying out the Nickels Referendum in every county on May 25. For questions concerning the Nickels program or the May 25 Nickels referendum, please contact Keith Oakley at 919.515.9262 or keith_oakley@ncsu.edu.
