Students Encouraged To Apply for Agribusiness Academy

Thirty high school students will have an opportunity to explore careers in agriculture through the 2022 Missouri Agribusiness Academy.  The students, representing 4-H clubs and FFA chapters, as well as farm families throughout Missouri, will be introduced to segments of agriculture they may have never considered.

The Missouri Department of Agriculture is offering 30 high school students the opportunity to explore careers in agriculture through the 2022 Missouri Agribusiness Academy, a competitive program for sophomores interested in pursuing agriculture-related degrees and careers.

“For years, the Missouri Agribusiness Academy has brought some of the best and brightest students together to learn about careers in agriculture,” said Director of Agriculture Chris Chinn. “This program helps build leaders who will be in the forefront of Missouri agriculture for years to come.

The students selected will have a yearlong opportunity to learn about the unique opportunities for careers in the Kansas City area, volunteer at the Missouri State Fair, and learn more about the agriculture industry in Jefferson City.

The first leg of the 2022 MAbA will be held June 6-10.  Students interested in participating must apply by Feb. 1st.  For applications and guidelines, as well as more information on the Missouri Department of Agriculture and its programs, visit the Department online at Agriculture.Mo.Gov.
