4-H Auction Scholarship
Congratulations to the winners of this year’s 4-H Auction Scholarships!
In 2016, thirty-seven scholarships were provided from the proceeds of the auction and the “4-H Scholarship Matching Sponsorship.”
Over 275 young people have received 4-H Auction Scholarships in the past decade, to attend the college of their choice. Deserving youth are selected based on their leadership and achievement in youth livestock programs, as well as their involvement in the local community. The scholarship program is funded through proceeds from the annual MN State Fair 4-H Auction, and through a new “4-H Scholarship Matching Sponsorship” opportunity.
