Champion Seed annual scholarship

The Champion Seed agriculture scholarship program is designed to reward and help graduating high school students as they prepare for college. It’s a small way of showing our support for the next generation who will continue to change the face of agriculture.

Here’s how it works:

  • We award a $1,000 scholarships to two high school seniors who submit the best answers to one of three questions on the below application.
  • Students must choose one of the three questions provided and submit a response of no more than 500-words. A panel of agricultural industry experts will evaluate essays based on the logic and creativity and/or thoroughness of the response.
  • Applicants do not need to be related to a crop farmer but must be sponsored by one. So, farm children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, brothers, sisters, neighbors and friends are all eligible to enter.
  • Students wishing to pursue ag-related majors and degrees are strongly considered, however all eligible applicants are welcome to apply.
  • All entries must be submitted by March 27, 2024. The agriculture scholarship winner will be announced April 3, 2024.

1. What do you think is the greatest challenge facing corn and soybean farmers today and, if possible, what solutions would you offer or create to solve these challenges?
2. What are the most important transformations you believe digital and mobile technology will bring to crop farming?
3. If you had 15 minutes to brief the President of the United States on an agricultural issue and solution, which would you choose to present and advocate for, and why?
