Applicants must be a graduating senior in Randolph County and planning to further their education. Either in a College, University, or Technical Trade College for this fall, for at least 2 years and maintain a 2.5 grade point average the first two semesters. The scholarship will be for the same year of high school graduation and may not be transferred to someone else by the recipient.
The degree of involvement in the Randolph County Fair will be strongly considered. The applicant must have exhibited for at least two years prior to their senior year, making a total of three years in a least two of the following areas: (1) Educational - Creative Arts Exhibits (2) Livestock showing and caring for their own animals, without having to be reminded, (3) Participate in the Scholarship Auctions to help where needed, (4) Help educate the younger exhibitors, (5) Participate in the livestock shows during the rest of the year and help with at least one of the clean-ups before or after events.
Scholarship applications will be available on Saturday night at the Scholarship Auction.
The Scholarship Auction has been a huge success that helps graduating seniors pay for their college. The only catch is that they have to be involved in the fair in some form or fashion and ready to seriously pursue their education. We would not be able to continue if it weren't for the generous donations and those who bid on items at the Auction. Items donated are certainly appreciated. If you would like to donate an item, please contact any Fair Board member before 6 p.m. on Friday evening. Also donated items must be brought by 8 p.m. Friday evening, unless it is a food item, in which case, please have it delivered before 4 p.m. on Saturday, September 2, so that it can be added to the list before the Auction. The Auction will take place in the show arena on Saturday immediately following the Wood Cutting Contest. WE HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!!!
