The Angus Foundation awarded more than $200,000 in scholarships on July 20 during the National Junior Angus Show in Louisville, Ky.
The Angus Foundation provided scholarships to graduate and undergraduate NJAA members to support the youth who will become future advocates for the breed.
"Angus breeders see youth as the future of the industry," says Katie Allen, Angus Foundation director of public relations and marketing. "They will be the ones to carry the breed forward, whether they are pursuing a degree in agriculture or not. These scholarships enable Angus youth to go on and do great things."
A five-member committee evaluated the scholarship applications and considered NJAA involvement, state association participation, leadership and other criteria. Since 1998, the Angus Foundation has awarded more than $1.5 million in graduate and undergraduate scholarships to Angus youth.
