Grants & Awards

Foundation Leader Awards

Your State Farm Bureau, County Farm Bureau, Women’s Committee, P&E Committee or YF&R committee can show your support by participating in our award challenges! Winners receive an award plaque and recognition at our Flapjack Fundraiser at the AFBF Annual Convention.

The Scholar Award

The Scholar Award is given to 6 states – one from each member group – and is awarded to the state Farm Bureau with the highest total donations in that member group.

State Farm Bureaus receiving the 2023 Scholar Award are: New Hampshire, South Dakota, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Georgia and Illinois.

The Apex Award

The Apex Award is given to states that give 10% more than they did in the previous year. Individual donations, leader and challenge awards, and online auction purchases all count towards that total.
