Agriculture has a tremendous impact on our nation’s economy, and Missouri is at the heart of this industry. It is important that young people carry on the tradition and heritage of those who have made this state the agricultural leader it is today and develop the skills necessary to continue that legacy in the future.

Are you a high school sophomore interested in becoming a future leader in agriculture and your community? Then the Missouri Agribusiness Academy (MAbA) is for you! MAbA is a youth leadership program designed for thirty high school sophomores to explore career opportunities in agribusiness, government and production agriculture.

Since 1988, the Missouri Agribusiness Academy has awarded 930 academy memberships through a competitive application and interview process. The 2019 MAbA class will tour agribusinesses, explore educational opportunities and meet with agricultural leaders in the Springfield area from June 3 – 7, 2019. The students will end their week with a graduation ceremony at the Missouri State Capitol in Jefferson City.

Written applications accompanied by three letters of recommendation must be postmarked by February 1, 2019.
