Youth in Agriculture

There is no better way to cultivate the future of agriculture than by investing in today's youth. The Missouri State Fair Foundation is dedicated to investing in the next generation of farmers, ranchers, and Agri-business leaders. This dedication is reflected in our Youth in Agriculture Committee ~ a group of volunteers from across the state who work tirelessly throughout the year to raise funds for the benefit of youth involved in agriculture. Since 1992, the Youth in Agriculture Committee has awarded 570 scholarships totaling $558,000.


Scholarships are primarily funded through the generosity of buyers at the annual Missouri State Fair Sale of Champions and individuals providing Hometown Support. A portion of each animal’s sale price is allocated to the scholarship program. The Missouri State Fair Foundation also supports the scholarship program through fundraising efforts at the annual Governor’s Ham Breakfast Auction. The Missouri Department of Agriculture hosts the Ag Golf Classic benefitting the Youth in Agriculture Scholarship Fund as well.


The Youth in Agriculture Committee celebrates all 4H & FFA exhibitors by hosting a special youth dance each year on the first Friday of the Fair. The youth dance is held in the Taylor Wood’s Youth Center on the Missouri State Fairgrounds.
