In the 17-year history of the Ag Day Scholarship Breakfast, $118,400
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 agricultural
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 agriculture field.
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. The Chamber Ag
Day Breakfast is a great networking opportunity for the agriculture
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 scholarships will be awarded March
24, 2016 at 7:00 a.m. at Lincoln Christian University’s Laughlin
This is a free event to all Logan County residents and guests. The
event is hosted by the Chamber Ag Committee and made possible by
local business sponsors. The event is a free community breakfast
with an informative and entertaining program. Anyone interested in
attending may make reservations by registering online at
