Each year the 4-H Citizenship Washington Focus program is sponsored through the National Contributions Program. Farm Credit sponsorship provides scholarships for 4-H youth from historically black land grant universities and tribal colleges to attend the summer program. This year was extraordinarily special because of the 125th anniversary of the universities’ establishment as land-grant institutions. The week was filled with celebratory activities and opportunities to connect with leadership from each college within the system along with members of congress and Farm Credit representatives.
On Monday at the Ag Media Summit (AMS), Farm Credit will be introducing our Farm Credit 100 program, including the launch of the Fresh Perspectives search for 100 people making a difference toward the future of agriculture. Spokespeople will be available at AMS to speak with any reporters interested in our centennial milestone and the Farm Credit 100 Fresh Perspectives program. We’ll also be distributing a press release and undertaking outreach to key national media outlets.
