Scholarship Opportunity For Students Rooted in Ag
DeMers: “What we have here is a national essay contest. What the students are required to do is write an essay of 750 to 1,000 words and tell us about a person who inspired you to be rooted in agriculture and how their influence motivated you to pursue a degree and ultimately a career in agriculture. Then how will you pay it forward and encourage others to be rooted in agriculture.”
