Time is quickly running out to nominate the best and the brightest in Grey Bruce agriculture.

The nomination deadline for the annual Tommy Cooper award is tomorrow.

All nominations must be returned to Bayshore Broadcasting by Noon tomorrow -- and the winner will be announced on April 8th at the Elmwood Community Centre.
