Sixteen young farmers, ages 18 to 35, will face off in four individual contest categories geared toward measuring their agricultural involvement, leadership and achievements.
Four young farmers each will compete in the following categories: Outstanding Young Farm Employee, Young Farmer Achievement, Outstanding Young Agricultural Leader, and Excellence in Agriculture.
Contest winners will be announced at an awards banquet that same evening. State-level winners of the Achievement and Excellence awards are eligible to compete in national competition at the American Farm Bureau Federation 95th Convention and Annual Meeting in San Antonio, Texas, Jan. 12-15.
