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.
“The Adams County Farm Bureau is pleased to offer these scholarship  opportunities to the children of our Farm Bureau members,” said Joy  Bauman, Chairperson of the ACFB Scholarship Committee, “We are  committed to helping our local students further their education.”

“As long as the parents or guardians of the students are members of  the Adams County Farm Bureau, the student is eligible.”
Evaluation of the applicants is based on academic achievement,  school and community activities, and a brief essay about the impact of  agriculture in their life.
If selected, students must send the Adams  County Farm Bureau proof of full-time enrollment (twelve  quarter-credit hours or semester equivalent credit hours) and at least  a 2.5 grade point average after either their first or second college  grading period. All grades must be received by May 31, 2018.
The application form is available to download at the Adams County Farm  Bureau website https://ofbf.org/counties/adams/ or by contacting the  Adams County Farm Bureau office at (937) 378-2212 or (888) 378-2212.
Applicants must submit their completed application, a copy of their  high school transcript, and a wallet size photo to the Adams County  Farm Bureau, PO Box 288, Georgetown, OH 45121.  All applications must  be received by 4 p.m. on Friday, March 31, 2017.
