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 648 scholarships totaling $684,000.

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.



Youth in Agriculture Scholarship Now Available

The Missouri State Fair Foundation Youth in Agriculture scholarship applictation for high school seniors is now available. Applications must be postmarked by February 4, 2020. One $5,000 platinum scholarship, one $2,500 supreme scholarship, and twenty-five $1,500 scholarships will be awarded.

Youth in Agriculture Scholarships are funded through the generosity of Youth in Agriculture supporters and buyers of livestock sold during the annual Sale of Champions; the supporters and buyers list is below. A portion of each animal’s sale price is allocated to the scholarship program. Additional support is also provided by GUESA USA/Dairy Queen/Steak ‘n Shake of Sedalia, proceeds from the Governor's Ham Breakfast Auction, and Sydenstricker John Deere of Missouri/Sydenstricker Angus Genetics .

Applicants must be high school seniors and active members of 4-H or FFA, and have participated at least once as a 4-H or FFA exhibitor at the Missouri State Fair. Eligible scholarship applicants must plan to enroll in an accredited Missouri community college or a four-year-college or university in the fall/spring semester immediately following graduation from high school. Applicants are not required to pursue a degree in agriculture, however, a five point bonus will be given to applicants pursuing a degree in agriculture during the selection process.

For more information regarding scholarships, please contact: Wayne Yokley at 573-690-8987 or Sharon Topliff at 573-353-0543
