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.
“Every year, we receive numerous application and we are always impressed with the quality of applications,” Executive Director Cera Youngson said. “The 4-H Saskatchewan Scholarship Selection Committee had difficulties narrowing it down. These 4-H members are both leaders in their communities and excel academically. We are excited to see what the future holds for each of them.”
The scholarships provide an incredible opportunity for 4-H members and Youngson is thankful for the support the organization receives.
“There are many amazing sponsors and individual supporters, who we are extremely grateful for,” she said. “Through their support, we were able to award close to $30,000 to our deserving members because of our supporters.”
