LINCOLN — Applications are being accepted for the 2020 Corn and Soy Ambassador Program sponsored by the Nebraska Corn Growers and Soybean associations.
The year-long program is for 10 college students interested in learning more about agriculture and how to be better industry advocates.
Three seminars will feature such topics as federal policies, the role of checkoff programs, and advocacy and leadership opportunities, and there is a summer agribusiness industry tour.
Participants also will help promote the growers’ associations at events such as Husker Harvest Days and Soybean Field Management Days.
Each student completing the program will receive a $500 scholarship.
Some program funds are provided by the Nebraska Corn and Soybean boards.
The deadline is Nov. 22 to submit complete an Ambassador Program application, which is posted at necga.org.
