YOUNG FARMERS CONTEST APPLICATIONS DUE JULY 1
Young farmers planning to participate in the Discussion Meet or Excellence in Agriculture contests have until July 1 to submit applications.
The Discussion Meet is designed to simulate communication and problem-solving skills in a committee setting. The overall winner receives a four-wheeler courtesy of First South Farm Credit.
Excellence in Agriculture is open to individuals or couples who do not earn more than half their income from production agriculture. Contestants are judged on presentations detailing their agricultural involvement. The winner receives a zero-turn mower courtesy of Dow AgroSciences.
Both contest winners receive an expenses-paid trip to the American Farm Bureau Federation’s annual meeting in January courtesy of the Alabama Farmers Federation.
Resources and applications are available online at AlfaYoungFarmers.org. For more information, contact Federation Young Farmers Division Director Jennifer Himburg at (334) 612-5159 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
