The Wisconsin FFA Foundation's Scholarship Review Committee has selected 21 FFA members to be awarded scholarships valued at $13,550.
According to Foundation Director Nicole Nelson, the scholarship program is supported by annual contributions from businesses and organizations and by individuals that establish endowment funds.
"It was tough for the selection committee to choose 21 out of 146 applicants," Nelson said. "There were so many well-rounded members that are all deserving of financial support. They're all trying to get ahead and prepare themselves for successful careers in agriculture."
The winners will be recognized on stage at the Wisconsin FFA Convention in Madison in June.
