The Missouri State Fair Foundation Youth in Agriculture scholarship application for current Missouri high school seniors is now available online at Missouri State Fair and Missouri State Fair Foundation. Applications should be submitted to the Missouri State Fair and must be postmarked by Feb. 2, 2015.

For the first time, one $5,000 platinum scholarship will be offered by Youth and Agriculture supporters. Additional scholarships being offered will include one $2,500 supreme scholarship sponsored by Sydenstrickers John Deere of Missouri/Sydenstrickers Angus Genetics, and thirty $1,500 scholarships sponsored by the Missouri State Fair Foundation and Youth in Agriculture supporters.

This year, a one-time donation of $1,000 was included in the scholarship funds, thanks to the contribution of 2014 Missouri Woman in Agriculture Contest Rising Star Award Winner Ashlyn Richardson. She chose the Youth in Agriculture Scholarship as the agriculture-related beneficiary of the $1,000 donation she received from contest sponsor, Monsanto.

Applicants must be high school seniors and active members of 4-H or FFA. Eligible scholarship applicants must plan to enroll in an accredited Missouri college or university and pursue a degree in agriculture. Applicants must have participated as a 4-H or FFA exhibitor at the Missouri State Fair at least once; however, applicants cannot have sold livestock in a past Missouri State Fair Sale of Champions auction.

Missouri State Fair scholarships are funded through the generosity of Youth in Agriculture sponsors and buyers of the livestock sold during the annual Sale of Champions; the sponsors and buyers list is available online. A portion of each animal’s sale price is allocated to the scholarship program. The Missouri State Fair Foundation also provides significant support of the scholarship program through fundraising efforts including the Governor's Ham Breakfast.

For more information please call the Missouri State Fair at 1-800-422-FAIR (3247) or e-mail questions to mostatefair@mda.mo.gov.
