The Ag Media Summit is well underway in St. Louis, Missouri with many important topics being covered this week. Few, however, are as important as preparing the next generation to be involved in the agriculture industry, a concept Alltech and the American Agricultural Editor’s Association (AAEA) understand well. Both organizations sponsor scholarships to assist the best and brightest in their goals of bettering our industry.
This year Cameron Jodlowski from Iowa State University was awarded AAEA’s Scholarship, and Nora Faris of the University of Missouri earned the Forrest Bassford Student Award sponsored by Alltech.
“We like to get involved with some of these young agriculture journalists right from the beginning,” says Ann Hess, Alltech award presenter. “Alltech just likes to help encourage people to stay with it.”
