Youth Ambassador Scholarship

2024 Youth Ambassadors

The Youth Ambassador Scholarship Program, sponsored by the Women’s Leadership Committee, aims to surface young leaders passionate about agriculture and cultivate their ability to engage in the food and farming conversation with a wide variety of audiences. The program also showcases opportunities for careers in agriculture and its related industries. 

The SCFB Youth Ambassadors receive a $2,000 college scholarship and specialized advocacy training preparing them to be influential and effective young leaders. Ambassadors will attend and speak at a variety of Farm Bureau events and meeting throughout the year to gain better understanding of the organization and its leadership structure.  These activities are paid for and coordinated by the SCFB Promotion and Education Division.

2024 Essay Topic: The use of artificial intelligence (AI) in agriculture has provided farmers with both unique insight and concrete information, which can have a profound impact on farms. How is AI benefiting agriculture, what should farmers be cautious about, and how can SC Farm Bureau play a role in helping farmers incorporate this new tool on their farms?
