Oct. 15 deadline for National Rice Month scholarship entries

Eligible high school seniors must meet Oct. 15 deadline. $8,500 in scholarships will be awarded.


High school seniors who plan to enter the National Rice Month (NRM) scholarship contest are reminded that entry forms are due by Oct. 15. Students from the six rice-growing states of Arkansas, California, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, and Texas are eligible.

The NRM scholarships, sponsored by Dow AgroSciences, are awarded to students who conduct outstanding rice promotional programs during the month of September. The promotions are judged on creativity and their impact in promoting rice.

Three scholarship prizes totaling $8,500 will be awarded. The grand prize is a $4,000 scholarship and a trip for the winner and a chaperone to attend the scholarship presentation on Dec. 9 at the USA Rice Outlook Conference in Biloxi, Miss. The second-place winner will receive $3,000 and the third-place winner will receive $1,500.

Entries must provide details of the promotion — including but not limited to a full description, photos, sample promotional materials, and pre- and post- event publicity. Digital or electronic submissions are encouraged, but not required. Applications must include a signed entry form (see form).

Winners will be notified by Nov. 12. For more details, visit the scholarship Web page (see page).
