At GROWMARK we know today’s youth are the leaders of tomorrow and we are committed to the education and development of those leaders. We are long standing supporters of agricultural youth and young adult programs including 4-H, FFA, the Junior Farmers Association, and Co-operative Young Leaders' Program (Ontario, Canada) and Farm Bureau Young Farmers, Leaders, and Agriculturists.

To develop these leaders, GROWMARK supports and organizes several contests and events including the annual ess​ay contest​, open to FFA members in Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin and Missouri as well as to 4-H Ontario members. Additionally, GROWMARK awards thousands of dollars in scholarships to high school and college students pursuing careers in agriculture.

Farm Bureau Young Farmers, Leaders, and Agriculturists are organizations for agriculture producers and professionals under the age of 35. GROWMARK supports the endeavors of these groups by sponsoring contests and events. To learn more about becoming a member of Farm Bureau Young Farmers, Leaders, or Agriculturists, contact your county farm bureau.
