Agriscience Award

These awards honor, reward and enable middle school and high school student teams exemplifying excellence in the agriculture-based application of exact and natural sciences for community service.

In rededicating these awards, the Foundation recognizes its proud partnership with the American Farm Bureau Federation in the legacy Agrisceinces program. Individual high school students and teachers as well as research leaders were honored for award winning achievement.

Built upon the CCA program middle and high school team model, the coming launch incorporates extensive outreach to a highly diverse national audience of educators, students, and interested citizens. From initial response, the Foundation expects extensive inquiry and interest supporting farm, food and production STEM innovation.

Significant interplay between team participants, mentors, judges and diverse elements of the Agricultural community encourages team excellence and improved products. Gold Medal and Community Grant Award winners may extend their mentored STEM community service applications through multiple academic, business community and leadership organizations.

Here is a partial list of legacy program recipients:
