Saskatoon – Each year, 4-H Saskatchewan awards scholarships to outstanding senior 4-H members from across the province, to assist them in their post-secondary education.
“As in previous years, we were impressed with the quality of applications we received,” Executive Director Cera Youngson said. “The 4-H Saskatchewan Scholarship Selection Committee had difficulties narrowing it down. Not only do these 4-H members excel academically, they are also leaders in their communities. We are excited to see what the future holds for each of them.”
The scholarships are an important part of 4-H for the senior members and Youngson is thankful for the support the organization receives.
“We are excited to have so many amazing sponsors, who have created scholarships for 4-H members pursuing post-secondary schooling,” she said. “This year, we were able to award more than $25,000 to our deserving members because of our supporters.”
Congratulations to the following members, who were awarded a 4-H Saskatchewan Scholarship in 2019:
The Pro Farm Advancing Forward the Dairy Industry Award will be awarded later this year.
In addition to awarding scholarships, the committee also awarded the Elgin Bracken Memorial 4-H Light Horse Award to Tatum Teal of Golburn Gallopers 4-H Club (Tisdale).
Many of the scholarship winners will be presented with their awards at upcoming achievement days and regional shows. If you are interested in talking to any of the scholarship winners, please contact:
