You are invited to participate in a research study entitled “The Mississippi Farm Families and Youth Study.” The study is being conducted by Dr. Tommy Phillips, a faculty member in the School of Human Sciences at Mississippi State University.

The purpose of this study is to enhance our understanding of how farm families might differ from non-farm families in ways that promote healthy youth development.

If you choose to participate, you’ll be asked to complete an online survey that should take 10-12 minutes to complete.

Your survey responses are anonymous, and IP addresses will not be collected. There will be no way to identify you or your family based on your survey responses. Upon completion of the survey, you will have the opportunity to enter a drawing for one of two $50 Tractor Supply Company gift cards.

For more information about this study, please feel free to contact Tommy Phillips at (662) 325-0655 or
