AMTOPP members firmly believe the education and promotion of the Green Industry begin with our youth; learning and participating in the industry at home and in their communities. The 4-H Scholarship is awarded to the 4-H individuals or clubs with the best project that will benefit their club and their community. The FFA Scholarship recipients use their money for college expenses. Some of the projects include:
  • Starting a community garden in the community, using the money to buy seeds and starter plants.
  • Install a native garden at a local city park in their community.
  • Plant Aspen and Cottonwood trees on the creek bank of school grounds as an experiment to see if they would push out the Russian Olive trees.
  • Create a spirit garden
  • Construct raised beds with drip irrigation to grow crops for Katie’s Krops*
  • Plant a small organic apple orchard
*Katie’s Krops (www.katiekrops.com) is a foundation that sponsors youth across the US to grow gardens that help fight against hunger.
