Wallace Huffman, George Norton, and Luther Tweeten received the 2012 Agricultural and Applied Economics Association Quality of Communication Award Honorable Mention for their publication, "Investing in a Better Future through Public Agricultural Research," CAST Commentary QTA2011-1, March 2011. This was awarded at the 2012 AAEA meetings in Seattle.

The Commentary has received plenty of attention as it examines the positive impact public funding can have. CAST EVP/CEO John Bonner congratulates the authors, and he notes that the award also symbolizes the excellent work from many to make this publication successful. As he says, “From the authoring and reviewing of the proposal; to assembling and working with the writing team; to editing, printing, and releasing the paper to the media on Capitol Hill and online, everyone is to be commended.”
