Youth Mentoring and Scholarship Programs

Youth Mentor Program

Young people involved in agriculture are a key part of the Florida Agricultural Hall of Fame banquet. Every year, the Hall of Fame’s Youth Mentor Program provides a selected group of students with an opportunity to attend the banquet free of charge, experience agriculture’s rich heritage, and meet industry leaders.

Financial support is given through sponsorships from the agricultural community. These sponsorships provide a place at each table during the banquet for students to get to know some of the industry’s leaders. Applications must be submitted through the online application form by 11:59 pm Central Time on Friday, January 13, 2023.
