[January 30, 2013]  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 education is one of the committee's top objectives.

In the 14-year history of the Ag Day Scholarship Breakfast, $77,000 in scholarships has been awarded to deserving local students. Any high school senior or current college student from Logan County planning to or currently pursuing an education in an agriculture-related field is encouraged to apply. The scholarship is designed for students who have the intention to return to Logan County as leaders in the ag field.

Ag scholarships are made possible due to generous sponsorships from community businesses. Local businesses partner to support and sustain agriculture awareness in the community. The chamber's Ag Day Scholarship Breakfast is a great networking opportunity for the ag and business community to come together.

One of the most important accomplishments of this event is the awarding of scholarships to our future agricultural leaders. The scholarship recipients will be announced during the 14th annual Logan County Ag Day Scholarship Breakfast on March 21 at 7 a.m. at Lincoln Christian University's Laughlin Center.
