Ohio Corn and Wheat offers a number of resources for students interested in agriculture:
We also provide training and classroom lessons for Ohio educators that address how we’ll feed 9 billion people and address topics such as water quality, biotechnology, energy and ethanol, soil and sustainability.
The Ohio Corn & Wheat Emerging Leader Summit is designed for growers and industry professionals from across Ohio. Our goal is to encourage and prepare Ohio’s grain producers to become more involved with grassroots programs and our organizations. Ohio agriculture needs leaders for the future that will continue to advance our industry and respond to the major challenge facing Ohio grain producers.
Participants in the program will be immersed in sessions to develop their knowledge and skills in the areas of leadership, communications, and advocacy.
We pride ourselves on staying ahead of and taking action on issues that have the potential to impact farmers’ social license to farm.
Working with our national counterparts, the National Corn Growers Association and the National Association of Wheat Growers, we influence governmental and consumer audiences at a grassroots level to safeguard and advocate for legislation that ensures a climate for corn and wheat success.
The Ohio Corn & Wheat Growers Association’s policy efforts are funded solely by membership dues. Each new member increases our manpower and resources to intensify our ability to impact.
Our internship is a nine-month (August-May) paid opportunity that is designed to provide real and practical work experience around Ohio Corn & Wheat’s educational, communications, and policy areas. Opportunities exist to gain experience in many different areas based upon the selected intern’s interests and skills.
