The Agricultural Institute of Nebraska and Farm Progress awarded Husker Harvest Days scholarships to nine Nebraska youth.
The Husker Harvest Days agricultural scholarship winners were chosen from Nebraska 2020-21 high school seniors pursuing advanced degrees in agriculture, agribusiness or other agriculture-related fields from an accredited university, college or technical school in the state.
The students selected were active in high school and extracurricular activities, engaged in their respective communities and maintained high grade point averages.
And even though the 2020 Husker Harvest Days was not in person, nine Nebraska youth earned scholarships for that year:
Blaine Bonifas, Aurora
Judson Bonsack, Dannebrog
Raegan Fiala, Geneva
John Ford, Cairo
Jacob E. Kozisek, Grand Island
Carsten Loseke, Columbus
Blake Racicky, Mason City
Wyatt Siwinski, Central City
Ty Swanson, Wood River
