Farm Fact: Academic Scholarships

By  | 

Sponsored - This month, the Alachua County Farm Bureau's Young Farmer and Rancher Committee presented Academic Scholarship Awards to deserving high school seniors who are members of Farm Bureau Families. County Farm Bureaus around the state provide similar support to youths planning to attend college or advanced vocational training.

Also, this month, the Alachua Farm Bureau Women's Committee hosted the Youth Speech Contest, with the winner competing at the district and perhaps the state and national levels.

Farm Bureau, the nation's largest agricultural organization, is helping to prepare a rising generation of farmers to provide the food and fiber our state and nation will need in the future.
