Future Leaders of Agriculture Program (FLAG)
The Foundation sponsors one wheat producer to attend the annual winter USW/National Association of Wheat Growers meeting and Hill day visits with the Oregon Wheat Growers League. This sponsorship allows the next generation of wheat producer leadership to become acquainted with the policy and legislative process in the nation’s capital and visit with Oregon legislators and federal agency representatives firsthand.
