Corteva supports #FarmON Virtual Concert benefitting 4-H

Published:

In support of America’s farmers and the next generation of leaders in agriculture, Corteva Agriscience is sponsoring the #FarmON Virtual Concert, benefiting National 4-H Council’s FOURWARD Fund.

The free virtual concert, with appearances from country music artists including Lee Brice, Justin Moore, Jennifer Nettles, Rodney Atkins, and the Peterson Farm Brothers, will air live on RFD-TV and other online and social networks at 7 p.m. CT Aug. 27.

As families and communities continue to face challenges due to COVID-19, the FOURWARD Fund ensures that all young people — with or without internet access — have access to the necessary resources and meaningful learning opportunities that help them thrive.

“Those who produce our food are essential — especially in times of crisis like we are facing now with COVID-19,” said Anne Alonzo, Corteva Agriscience, Senior Vice President, External Affairs & Chief Sustainability Officer. “Having the opportunity to honor America’s farmers and support the next generation during these unprecedented times through the FOURWARD Fund is indeed our pleasure. Our work with 4-H is an acknowledgement of our support of today’s young people who will eventually lead both agriculture and our communities in the future.”

Corteva Agriscience proudly collaborates with local and regional communities through outreach programs around the world, focusing efforts on empowering women, enabling youth and engaging communities.

“Millions of young people across the country are facing a world of uncertainty due to COVID-19,” said Jill Bramble, Senior Vice President and Chief Development Officer, National 4-H Council. “We’re thrilled to have the support of our partner Corteva Agriscience as we continue to provide all youth with the critical learning opportunities and resources they need to reach their full potential during this national crisis and beyond.”
