Monsanto has a number of community and youth programs underway, like community grants and youth scholarships. They range in size from $1500 to $2500, and are designed to give back to or invest in the community and its young people. The money from the programs can be used in a number of ways – schools, community programs, local fire departments and the like.
The FFA chapter at United High School in Monmouth, Ill., was the recipient of one such $2,500 grant.
What it did with its grant, however, was something else, something that speaks to whose these young people are and the kind of community they live in. You can read about it in the Galesburg, Ill, Press-Register.
