PA Farm Show Foundation to award its millionth scholarship dollar

The PA Farm Show Scholarship Foundation is celebrating two big milestones.

This year’s show marks 20 years of giving out scholarships to deserving young people taking part in the show. In those 20 years, the foundation has given out more than $1 million.

Thirty-five students will be awarded scholarships this year.

“All that money is going to youth,” said Morgan Firestine, special events coordinator for the PA Farm Show Scholarship Foundation. “It’s a huge deal for the Farm Show Scholarship Foundation, because these youth here that are showing are benefiting from the dollars that we’ve raised.”

The foundation is supported by the sale of livestock at the Farm Show and also through donations from area businesses. The sale of champions is set for Tuesday at 10 a.m. in the Sale Arena at the Farm Show Complex.
