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 Center.
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
