Agriculture

The Agriculture committee promotes interest and understanding of the Agriculture industry. Our goal is to increase education and support of the agricultural community and to support the development of value-added products. In addition to educating the public on agricultural issues, our committee will continue to provide successful programs, identify mechanisms to promote farm safety, and promote National Agriculture Awareness Week.

The Agricultural Committee of the Huron Area Chamber & Visitors Bureau honors an outstanding farmer each year with an award and $500.  Applications for the award are due by December 31.    

Scholarships are also given each year to graduating seniors.  All students living in the Huron area are eligible.  The application deadline is always April 1.  Download the application here.
