The Nebraska Department of Agriculture announced that two returning delegates at the 42nd annual Nebraska Agricultural Youth Institute were awarded scholarships for their leadership and commitment to agriculture, as demonstrated during this year’s conference.

Dann Husmann, the associate dean of UNL’s College of Agricultural Science and Natural Resources, presented the scholarships to Toni Rasmussen of Newman Grove and Cole Gibbens of Atkinson. They were each awarded a $600 scholarship to utilize when they begin school at UNL in the fall.

“We are excited to partner with CASNR to offer these scholarships to these two deserving delegates,” said Nebraska Agricultural Youth Council Advisor Christin Kamm. “We greatly appreciate CASNR’s willingness to sponsor these scholarships, and are pleased that both Toni and Cole plan to pursue degrees in agriculture.”

This year marked the 13th year the scholarships have been awarded during NAYI. Rasmussen and Gibbens were selected by the members of the Nebraska Agricultural Youth Council based upon their demonstrated leadership, interest in agriculture and the good example that they provided to the other NAYI delegates throughout the five-day conference.

Nearly 200 high school participants gathered on UNL’s East Campus last week (July 8 to 12) to discuss agricultural policy, listen to motivational speakers, and learn more about careers in agriculture. Delegates were selected to attend NAYI based on their interest in agriculture and their leadership skills. The NAYI program is coordinated by the NAYC, comprised of 19 college‑aged men and women selected by NDA.
