Young farmer, Sion Thomas Williams, has won the 2012 Brynle Williams Memorial Award.
The winner was announced at the Royal Welsh Show by Deputy Minister for Agriculture, Alun Davies who was accompanied by Mary Williams, the wife of the late Brynle.
The Welsh Government established the Brynle Williams Memorial Award two years ago to recognise the contribution of the late Mr Williams as both an Assembly Member and also as an active farmer.
The award marks the life of the former AM and also celebrates the achievements of young Welsh farmers.
A delay in diagnosing the late North Wales AM Brynle Williams' cancer might have shortened his life - but an even earlier discovery wouldn't have necessarily led to a cure, according to evidence at an inquest into his death.
Mr Williams died in April last year of cancer of the colon. Today, the coroner said that the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board had failed to give him the 'gold standard' of care.
The board say they've learned lessons. But the dead politician's family say they may launch further legal action.
An inquest into the death of former North Wales politician Brynle Williams is due to take place in Wrexham today. The Conservative Assembly Member died last year at the age of 62, after a long battle with cancer.
