Arkansas Soybean Scolarship Contest
We're investing in the next generation of agriculture professionals. Working in ag doesn't look like it used to, but we need YOU to show the world what a day in the life of an ag professional looks like. That's right, we want to see their world through your eyes! What's in it for you? We're awarding a $750 scholarship to one Arkansas FFA senior from each district; Northwest, Eastern and Southern.
Entering the contest is simple – if you're a senior in high school and a member of your local FFA chapter, go out and spend the day with an agricultural professional in the soybean industry. Once you're all worn out, come home and recall your day as an essay. Tell us what you learned! Oh, don't forget a selfie with your new favorite ag guy or gal.
Here's what you must include:
- Give us some background and biographical information of your professional
- Tell us how they became involved in the agricultural industry
- Tell us how long they have been in this industry and what led them to working with soybeans
- Finally, tell us how their work allows them to give back to the world
Once you're done, email your essay to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 p.m. on May 12 to be eligible to win a scholarship. The Arkansas Soybean Promotion Board members will review all essays and choose the winners.
