These scholarships are possible thanks to the gracious contributions of many individuals and companies. One $5,000 platinum scholarship sponsored by Youth in Agriculture supporters, one $2,500 supreme scholarship sponsored by Sydenstricker John Deere of Missouri/Sydenstricker Angus Genetics, and thirty $1,500 scholarships sponsored by Youth in Agriculture are being offered.
Missouri State Fair scholarships are funded through the generosity of Youth in Agriculture sponsors and buyers of the livestock sold during the annual Sale of Champions; the sponsors and buyers list is available here. A portion of each animal’s sale price is allocated to the scholarship program. Additional support is also provided by Guesa USA/Dairy Queen of Sedalia, Guesa USA/Steak ‘n Shake of Sedalia, the Missouri Department of Agriculture’s Annual Ag Golf Classic and the Missouri State Fair Foundation.
