A Pennsylvania 501(C)(3) charitable organization, the Farm Show Scholarship FoundationOpens In A New Window builds on the best traditions of the annual Farm Show, with a special focus on educational activities and scholarship support for eligible and worthy students demonstrating a commitment to Pennsylvania agriculture. The foundation is managed by a board of directors who are elected annually. The board is comprised of foundation members, previous livestock buyers and those who serve as chairs of various Farm Show committees.
The foundation was established in 1993 through the vision and generous support of several key leaders in agriculture, and three companies that contributed more than $11,000 toward scholarships. Current scholarship funding comes from Farm Show champion animal sales, corporate membership dues, individual contributions, proceeds from hotel and restaurant listings in our annual accommodations brochure, buyer contributions from the Farm Show’s junior livestock sale and the foundation’s annual benefit dinner and auction. Since its founding, the foundation has awarded nearly $1,064,750 in scholarships to 395 worthy 4-H and FFA youth.
Student scholarship eligibility is determined in a straightforward manner: anyone who exhibited a Farm Show junior market animal since 1993 and is enrolled in a post-secondary educational institution is eligible to apply for a scholarship.
