The Missouri Forage and Grassland Council / Grazing Lands Conservation Initative is proud to be a sponsor of the Grassland Evaluation Contest for Missouri’s high school Vo-Ag students. We are grateful for the time and effort Missouri’s Vo-Ag teachers and advisors devote to preparing their students for the competition each year.

The membership of MFGC/GLCI has a keen interest in advancing the role of profitable and sustainable forage and grassland production in Missouri. The Grassland Evaluation Contest is just one of many activities through which we strive to fulfill our mission.

To incentivize student interest in the Grassland Evaluation Contest, and to help some worthy student achieve his/her academic and career goals, the Board of Directors of MFGC/GLCI has acted to offer a freshman scholarship in the amount of $1,000.00 annually as our budget permits.

Time is of the essence!

Each year’s scholarship award presentation will be made at the MFGC/GLCI annual conference and business meeting held in early November. The last District Grassland Evaluation Contest held can be as late as the third week of October. Therefore it is imperative students do not miss the deadline on submitting their application. Scanning and e-mailing are recommended. They may wish to have their application completed in advance of the District Contest and ready to be submitted if they qualify to move on to State competition.
