Entrants must be a member of a national agriculture-related organization, such as FFA, 4-H or a student National Agri-Marketing Association (NAMA), with plans to pursue a career in agriculture or agribusiness. Entries will be posted to the contest webpage and a public online voting phase to determine the four finalists begins July 2. Finalists will be announced Aug. 22.
Videotaped interviews and performances of the four finalists then will be aired on national agricultural television with online voting to determine the grand prize winner. Voting for finalists will take place between Sept. 24-Oct. 19. The grand prize winner will be awarded a $10,000 scholarship, with the three remaining finalists receiving $5,000 scholarships. Winners will be announced on Oct. 24.
