United Cooperative, based in Beaver Dam with locations throughout Wisconsin, introduced their 27, $1,000 scholarship winners during their annual meeting and informational meetings the week of April 15.
Seventeen of the scholarships were awarded to students majoring in an agricultural field, and three were designated to students attending a technical school or short-course program. The remainder was presented to a mixture of majors.
Applicants were judged on their leadership skills, scholastic achievement, extra-curricular activities, motivation, and academic and personal goals. To be eligible, the student or the parent had to be a patron member of United Cooperative; the student must attend an accredited college, university, or technical school; and the student must maintain a GPA of 2.0 or above on a 4.0 scale. All applications were judged by the Wisconsin Federated Youth Foundation.
