Youth Leadership is your ticket to enhancing your agricultural advocacy and leadership skills all while having fun with high school students from across the state. This year’s program is July 25-28 at the Governor's School for Agriculture at John de la Howe in McCormick County. Participants will get an inside look at how the Farm Bureau organization effectively helps the agriculture industry by being a strong voice in the legislative arena and providing opportunities for members to grow as grassroots leaders.
Some program highlights are:
• Surprise sports keynote speaker
• Leadership Training
• Team building activities
• Hands-on learning through Ag Labs
The program is open to Farm Bureau members that are rising juniors and seniors in high school. Due to the COVID restrictions that will be in place to ensure a safe time together, this year’s program has a cap of 30 students. Students will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis and there is not a limit per county. Each student will have their own room and we will be following the guidelines set forth by the CDC and the Governor’s School for Agriculture.
Farm Bureau’s Youth Leadership Conference is sponsored by the Women’s Leadership Committee.
The deadline to register is July 2, 2021.
Completed forms must be submitted through the county Farm Bureau office.
