[January 26, 2011]  The ag committee of the Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of Commerce is looking to reward qualified students with scholarships. Cultivating future agricultural leaders by awarding scholarships toward their agricultural education is one of the committee's top objectives.

HardwareAny high school senior or current college student from Logan County planning to or currently pursuing an education in an agricultural field is encouraged to apply. The scholarship is designed for students planning to return to Logan County as leaders in the ag field.

Applications for the ag scholarships are available at, in local high school guidance offices or from the chamber office, 1555 Fifth St. in Lincoln, phone 217-735-2385. The deadline to apply for a scholarship is March 1. Applications should be returned to the chamber office no later than 5 p.m.

The ag scholarships are made possible due to generous sponsorships from community businesses. Local businesses partner together to support and sustain agriculture awareness in our community. In the 12-year history of the Ag Day Scholarship Breakfast, $58,000 in scholarships has been awarded to deserving local students.

This year's scholarship recipients will be announced during the 12th annual Logan County Ag Day Scholarship Breakfast on March 24 at 7 a.m. at Lincoln Christian University's Laughlin Center.

This is a free event to Logan County residents and is a great networking opportunity for the ag and business community to come together. It is hosted by the chamber's ag committee and made possible by local business sponsors. The community breakfast includes an entertaining and informative program. Anyone interested in attending may make reservations by calling the chamber at 217-735-2385.

The Ag Day Scholarship Breakfast is an important part of the mission of the chamber to advocate for business by providing leadership, programs and services that create, protect and enhance the business environment for the benefit of chamber members and Logan County.
