Keeping The Agriculture Industry Growing

Posted: Updated:

WORCESTER COUNTY, Md. - The foundation was laid over a century ago, and for the past several years, the Worcester County Farm Bureau has been giving local students an incentive to keep the agriculture industry growing.

"There is less than two percent of the American population is now in ag versus years ago. It used to be 90 some percent so its kind of, unfortunately, a dwindling profession. So anybody we can support to be in ag is a great thing," said Kathryn Danko-Lord, President of the Worcester County Farm Bureau.

Danko-Lord says they've got at least one $500 scholarship to give to any Worcester County student enrolled in an agriculture-related program.

"But if we also have a student that is interested in finance, for example, and he or she thinks that their major can benefit the ag community then we're okay with that too," she said.

Good grades are a plus, but involvement in the farming community is essential.

With 30,000 members committed to helping the industry flourish, the Farm bureau wants their recipient to be just as dedicated.

The deadline for this scholarship is April 1st, so apply soon. For more information, click here http://www.delmarvaed.org/.
