4-H and FFA members can apply for fair scholarships

A dozen scholarships are available to 4-H and FFA exhibitors for this year’s California Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles.

The $250 awards, six for 4-H and six for FFA, are for students who are members in good standing at those clubs within San Luis Obispo County. The students must have exhibited at last year’s fair and write a one page essay on the topic: “What experiences have I gained from exhibiting livestock at the California Mid-State Fair that will help me in the future?”

They must also submit two letters of reference.

Applications are due May 25. Forms are available at the Paso Robles Events Center, 2198 Riverside Avenue, or at
