Livestock Scholarships

 

Thirty-three North Carolina students have been named recipients of 2018 N.C. State Fair Youth Livestock Scholarships. The scholarships are designed for high school seniors and students currently enrolled in an institute of higher education who have participated in the junior livestock or market turkey shows at the N.C. State Fair.

 

The scholarships are funded by sponsors of the annual N.C. State Fair Junior Livestock Sale of Champions. The number of scholarships awarded each year is based on qualified applicants and funds available from the previous year’s Sale of Champions. Because of strong support of the 2017 sale, 4 scholarships valued at $3,500 were awarded and 29 scholarships valued at $2,000 each were awarded this year. 

 

 

Check back in January 2019 to apply for a 2019 N.C. State Fair Youth Livestock Scholarship.
