Roots and Shoots Grants

The Stephenson County Farm Bureau is again offering “Roots and Shoots Apprentice/Internship Grants”. While Bruce Johnson was the Manager of the Stephenson County Farm Bureau, he established the Roots and Shoots Program.  The goal of Roots and Shoots is to encourage Stephenson County youth to explore job opportunities within our community and the agriculture industry. As part of this we are offering a matching grant for Agriculture-related businesses who employ high school students or college students.

Funding can be used for intern/apprentice salaries, mileage, employee materials, etc. The application deadline is June 9, 2023.
