A Long-Term Investment by Florida Farmers
Florida’s dairy farmers know the importance of being involved in, and giving back to, the community. And they are proud to sponsor the most unique and longest-running sports awards program in the country – the Florida Dairy Farmers High School Sports Awards program.
By honoring and promoting student-athletes in the Sunshine State, the Florida Dairy Farmers High School Sports Awards program helps young people set a lasting and positive example for those following in their footsteps.
Since 1992, the Florida Dairy Farmers High School Sports Awards program, which recognizes all 30 FHSAA-sanctioned and recognized sports, has honored more than 5,000 of the state’s top student-athletes and coaches. Past winners have gone on to star at the collegiate and professional levels, and some have even represented their country in the Olympic Games.
The program exemplifies Florida Dairy Farmers’ commitment to young people, and emphasizes to them the importance of keeping dairy as a primary part of their diet. At on-campus ceremonies, farmers present awards to student-athletes and lead assemblies in milk toasts, putting a face on the dairy industry for future generations.
For Florida’s dairy farmers, the program is a long-term investment, by in the state’s youth, and the award is looked at by many athletes and coaches as the Florida high school version of the Heisman Trophy.
