National Rice Month Scholarship

If you’re a high school graduating student from Arkansas, California, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, or Texas, submit a three-minute video that creates awareness and promotes U.S.-grown rice, September National Rice Month, and the importance of rice to your state.


Entries will be judged on creativity, quality, popularity, and effectiveness in promoting U.S.-grown rice. Sample topics include: rice production, nutrition (think about incorporating USDA’s MyPlate MyState), sustainability, marketing/promotion … the list goes on!


Three scholarship prizes, sponsored by Corteva Agriscience, totaling $8,500 will be awarded. The grand-prize winner will receive a $4,000 scholarship and a trip with a chaperone this December to the awards ceremony at the 2019 USA Rice Outlook Conference in Little Rock, Arkansas. The second-place winner will receive a $3,000 scholarship, and third-place $1,500.


Entries are due by October 31.
