Dairy Service Unit Scholarship Award
The Wayne/Ashland County Dairy Service Unit Scholarship was created to provide financial assistance for those students in Wayne and Ashland Counties who desire to further their education beyond the high school level, in the field of agriculture, with a special interest in the dairy industry. Students who will be graduating from high school in 2020, as well as first- and second-year students enrolled in a post high school program are eligible to receive the scholarship award.
The board will determine the number of scholarships and the amount of each scholarship according to the available funds, with at least one scholarship of $1,000.00. The committee also reserves the right to not award any scholarships in a given year at their discretion. Preference will be given to first time recipients. Applications are due into the Wayne County Extension office by February 15, 2020. Click on the link below to get a copy of the scholarship application.
Outstanding Dairy Youth Award
Each year the Wayne/Ashland Dairy Service Unit selects an outstanding dairy youth to honor. The award recipient is an individual who has achieved excellence in their dairy project through participation in the 4-H or FFA program in the current or prior year. This award is presented to an individual or individuals who have demonstrated outstanding performance in all aspects of dairy (not just showing but to include activities such as judging teams, knowledge bowl and skillathon) and other 4-H or FFA activities (Jr. Leaders, Jr. Fair Board, etc..) To be considered for the award, individuals must be nominated by a 4-H advisor or vocational agriculture instructor/FFA advisor.
Award nomination forms are due to the Wayne County Extension Office (428 W. Liberty St. Wooster, OH 44691) by February 15, 2020. The winner will be announced at the Wayne/Ashland Dairy Service Unit Dairy Banquet in March and will receive a $250.00 award. Click on the link below for a copy of the award form.
