LIVESTOCK SCHOLARSHIPS

 

Thirty North Carolina students have been named recipients of 2019 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. Following is a list of the scholarship recipients by county, along with the university or community college they will attend this fall. All scholarships are for $2,000 unless otherwise noted:
