[March 15, 2013]  The Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of Commerce will host its annual Ag Scholarship Breakfast next week in honor of National Ag Week. The scholarship recipients will be announced during the 14th annual Logan County Ag Day Scholarship Breakfast on Thursday at 7 at Lincoln Christian University's Laughlin Center.

This is a free event to all Logan County residents and guests.

The purpose of the event is to cultivate future agricultural leaders by awarding scholarships toward their education. This is one of the top objectives of the chamber's ag committee. This year the chamber plans to give away $14,000 in scholarships, the most in the history of the event. The scholarship is designed for students who have the intention to return to Logan County as leaders in the ag field.

In addition to awarding scholarships, there will be giveaways and a guest speaker, Jean Payne of the Fertilizer Institute. She will discuss productivity and environmental responsibility.

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 14-year history of the Ag Day Scholarship Breakfast, $91,000 in scholarships has been awarded to deserving local students. The Ag Day Scholarship Breakfast is a great networking opportunity for the ag and business community to come together.
