2020 Scholarship recipients announced

Each year the county Farm Bureau awards scholarships to undergraduate Farm Bureau members who exhibit academic excellence and outstanding leadership and community involvement. Applicants are scored based on involvement in activities, clubs, honors and awards, community service, work experience, Farm Bureau membership history and engagement, and their responses to essays related to the Farm Bureau’s mission and purpose. A major in agriculture or a support field is preferred but not required.
