Agvocates (“Advocates for Agriculture”)
MCGA’s Agvocate program is designed to create a learning environment to encourage the development of young leaders in agriculture. The program also strives to create awareness of issues facing corn farmers and develops young leaders into skilled advocates for these issues.
Through hands-on experiences, networking with agricultural professionals and social media avenues, Agvocates will be given opportunities to become actively involved with corn and agriculture in Minnesota. They will develop communication, leadership and advocacy skills as well. Among other benefits of the program, Agvocates will receive a $3,000 scholarship.
Eligible candidates must be between the ages of 18 and 24 and be enrolled in a 2-year or 4-year post-secondary education or training program. Among others, participants will be required to attend MCGA-related events, advocate through social media platforms and write an article for MCGA’s Corn Talk publication.
