Rock County 4-H member receives livestock scholarship
Rock County 4-H member Whitney Elbers received a $1,000 scholarship on Sept. 7 during the virtual 4-H Auction Scholarship Awards Program.
The Minnesota State Fair and the 41st annual Minnesota Livestock Breeders Association Purple Ribbon 4-H Auction were canceled due to the pandemic.
However, the 4-H Auction Scholarships were still awarded, due to support of donors.
A total of 51 youth leaders with 4-H animal science projects received a total of $87,000 scholarship donations during the program.
The scholarships are awarded to 4-H animal science project members who graduated from high school in either 2019 or 2020 and are pursuing either a four-year or two-year college degree.
Elbers’ scholarship was supported by donors Juanita Reed Boniface and Dick Boniface and Mary Bennett Kriva and the Minnesota Cattlewomen.
