HOW IT WORKS

The Foundation Scholarship Animal will be the last to be auctioned before the Championship Drive at the Junior Livestock Auction on Saturday, July 18, 2020.  Everyone has the opportunity to bid on the scholarship animal which is a fundraiser for the Foundation.  Bids start at $50 per pound and go down to $1 per pound.  The Foundation Scholarship Animal will be processed and donated to the local food bank.  If you're not a buyer, you can still donate to the Scholarship Animal.

THE MORE YOU BID, THE MORE THEY RECEIVE IN SCHOLARSHIP FUNDS!!!

The 2020 scholarship recipient is guaranteed to receive a $3,000 college scholarship and a $2,500 cash prize, regardless of how much is raised by the sale of the animal.  ​But, the more you bid, the more he or she receives in scholarship funds.  Should the proceeds from the sale of the scholarship animal exceed $55,000, the recipient will receive 10% of the proceeds in excess of $55,000 in the form of additional scholarship funds.
