Students who participate in 4-H and Future Farmers of America have through today to enter a statewide college scholarship contest sponsored by Capital Farm Credit. So far, two area students have entered the competition.
Capital Farm Credit awards a total of $9,500 in scholarship money to the top three winners. Winners are determined by votes from the public, with one or more winner determined by an impartial committee. The 4-H club or FFA chapter of the winning entry also receives a monetary donation from Capital Farm Credit.
Uvalde Classical Academy ninth-grader Morgan Dreyer cited the importance of farmers and ranchers to daily life. Her entry can be seen at https://woobox.com/4w92em/gallery/8A_pRqU_aIs.
