About The Minnesota Targeting Excellence Committee

Targeting Excellence was founded in 2013 with the vision, “To unite agribusinesses, production systems, and institutions of higher education in a common cause – to ensure the world’s food supply by providing scholarships for students committed to food animal agriculture.”

Targeting Excellence formed a Minnesota committee in 2013 making it the 2nd state to join the organization. The first Minnesota fundraiser was held in 2013.
Targeting Excellence awarded $10,000 to students this year from the funds raised last year.  Help us increase the scholarship awards available for next year by making a one time or recurring donation today.
