Farm Bureau scholarships available to HS seniors

March 31 is deadline for 2017 awards –

Adams County Farm Bureau (ACFB) is offering two $500 scholarships to  2017 graduating high school seniors who are the children, and/or  dependents of Adams County Farm Bureau members.

All grades must be received by May 31, 2018.
