LARAMIE – Children of Farm Bureau members are encouraged to apply for one of nine college scholarships offered by the Wyoming Farm Bureau Federation (WyFB). The applications are available at county Farm Bureau offices, online at http://www.wyfb.org (click on calendar tab) or by calling 800-442-8325 Ext. 719.
The Livingston-King scholarship is valued at $1,000 for 2011. The Livingston-King scholarship is a memorial for former Wyoming Farm Bureau Presidents H.D. Livingston and H.J. King as well as Norma Livingston, mother of WyFB President Perry Livingston.
The five Wyoming Farm Bureau Federation scholarships are $500 each. The three “Continuing Education” scholarships are also $500 each. The continuing education scholarship recipients must submit at least two years of college transcripts.
The state application deadline is March 1, 2011.
“We encourage all Farm Bureau members with children headed to or at college to have their children apply,” WyFB President Perry Livingston said. “We are proud to provide $5,500 statewide in scholarships each year for the children of our members because they are our future in the agriculture industry.
“Please also check with your county Farm Bureau because most offer some type of a scholarship,” Livingston concluded.
