The Alabama 4-H Foundation recently awarded thirty-five scholarships to 4-H high school seniors. Scholarships for $1000 were presented at a recognition and awards program following 4-H Competitive Events Day at the Alabama 4-H Center in Columbiana.

The scholarships can be used for any post-secondary education during the 2019–2020 academic year.

“The Alabama 4-H Foundation is committed to seeing young people succeed, and there is no better way to display this kind of commitment than through scholarship support,” said Seth Tuttle, development officer for the Alabama 4-H Foundation. “We’re honored to have awarded 35 scholarships to 4-H’ers from all across our great state. It is our goal to help these young people continue on their life journey and represent the values of Alabama 4-H.”

Applications were accepted online through March 1, 2019. As part of the application process, students were required to submit a resume, a letter of recommendation and also their 4-H story titled “How Alabama 4-H Has Changed My Life.”
