PA Farm Show Scholarships Awarded
The Pennsylvania Farm Show Scholarship Foundation presented 26 students with $3,500 scholarships on Tuesday, Jan. 10, at the 2012 Pennsylvania Farm Show in Harrisburg.
Agriculture Secretary George Greig presented the scholarship awards, recognizing the integral contributions youths make in keeping Pennsylvania growing.
“Each year, the Pennsylvania Farm Show celebrates the best of agriculture – and you are the best,” said Greig. “I thank the scholarship foundation, its members, contributors and buyers for their hard work. You are making a difference in the lives of these students.”
The foundation has awarded $977,250 to 370 junior Farm Show exhibitors since the program began in 1993. In addition, Delaware Valley College provides matching grants to its recipients, and Penn State’s College of Agricultural Sciences offers $2,000 to its full-time students.
