WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Sept. 17, congresswoman Kristi Noem was honored with the “Fueling Growth” award for her leadership in supporting domestic energy production and pursuing energy independence through the production and use of ethanol. The award was presented by Growth Energy. It is the fourth year she has received the award.

“From groceries to electricity, hardworking South Dakotans are seeing many of their costs rise, but ethanol can be part of a solution that lowers costs for our families,” said Rep. Noem. “American energy independence is critical to protecting our wallets, creating good jobs, and preserving national security. It can only be achieved if we pursue an all-of-the-above American energy plan that includes resources like ethanol. I am honored to receive this award and promise to continue moving our country toward a self-sustaining energy model.”

“Rep. Noem has been a staunch advocate for biofuels and the role they play in supporting South Dakota’s economy and lowering costs for families,” said Jeff Broin, Growth Energy co-chair and POET founder and Executive Chairman of the Board. “On behalf of Growth Energy, I am honored to recognize Rep. Noem in this way and I thank her for her dedication to growing energy for South Dakota.”
