WEST ALLIS, Wis. — World Beef Expo is excited to announce that they will be awarding $2500 in scholarships at the 2017 World Beef Expo. They are now accepting applications for two scholarships for young adults with a background in beef production. The “World Beef Expo Founders Scholarship” was created to honor the men and women whose hard work and dedication created the event. The two $1,250 scholarships are sponsored through the generous contributions of the Gregg and Angela May family and the Dave and Marcia DeLong family.
“We are proud to offer this opportunity to young people. We know the best way to secure the future of beef production is through our youth,” said Gregg May, co-sponsor of the award and beef producer from Mineral Point.
The scholarships will be open to anyone who is a high school senior to 21 years of age and is enrolled or planning to enroll in a university, junior, or technical college. Preference may be given to applicants pursuing a career in agriculture, especially beef production. Applicants who have exhibited at World Beef Expo may also be given preference.
