Samantha Gibson of Norborne and Mason Kiehl (now of Columbia) were chosen by a panel of judges during the organization's 99th annual meeting.

As ambassadors, Gibson and Kiehl will make selected appearances throughout 2014 promoting agriculture on behalf of Missouri Farm Bureau. They will assist with Farm Bureau events at the Missouri State Fair and elsewhere. Gibson and Kiehl were picked from a field of 18 contestants selected by county farm bureaus.

Gibson represents the Carroll County Farm Bureau. Her parents are Todd and Sharon Gibson. She currently attends the University of Missouri where she is majoring in Agriculture and minoring in Economics. She is a College of Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources (CAFNR) ambassador, a CAFNR Career Coach, an agriculture education mentor and a member of the Agriculture Communicators of Tomorrow, Agriculture Education Society, and Collegiate Farm Bureau.

Kiehl represents the Linn County Farm Bureau and is the son of Don and Lori Kiehl. He is a sophomore at the University of Missouri majoring in Ag Systems Management. He is active in the Collegiate Farm Bureau, ASM Club, Ag Economics Club, and Ag Future of America.

The Missouri Farm Bureau's ambassador program selects a male and female students, between 17 and 22 years old, to represent agriculture and Farm Bureau for one year. Each ambassador receives a $1,250 scholarship and travels to Washington, DC in March on a Farm Bureau legislative trip. Each of the 18 applicants were interviewed, followed by six finalists presenting five-minute speeches and extemporaneously responding to a question.

The ambassador program is sponsored by the Missouri Farm Bureau's Promotion and Education Committee. Scholarship funds come from the Missouri Farm Bureau's Foundation for Agriculture.
