The NYFB Agricultural Youth Scholarship is for 2022 graduating High School Seniors who will continue their education to prepare for a career in some way connected to the diverse agricultural industry. This includes advancing their education through college or pursuing advanced training in the skilled trades. 

A District level competition will be held. Scoring will determine the County winners as well as the District winner. If applications do not meet the criteria to be a district winner, no district award will be given. The judging event may necessitate a personal interview and essay presentation or may be based solely upon the application and attachments. The judging will take place prior to April 20, 2022. Each District Winner will receive $250 plus a memento of their selection. 

State winner selection will be made from District Winners, based solely on the submitted applications; there will be no personal interviews.
