The Wisconsin Pork Association offers $100 youth pig project scholarships to assist youth with their 4-H or FFA pig projects. The program encourages youth to become involved in the Wisconsin pork industry, provides opportunities to develop life skills, and exposes youth to the many career paths available within the industry.
4-H and FFA youth are eligible to apply for this scholarship used to offset costs associated with their 2023 pig project. Scholarships are awarded in three age divisions: Ages 9-12, 13-15, and 16-19 (as of January 1, 2023). Through the support of our sponsors our goal is to raise enough funds to provide up to 50 youth with scholarships. Additionally, the WPA matches the funds provided by pork producers and Wisconsin residents for the program.
We are always looking for supporters for this program as we feel it is a great opportunity to support our youth and to keep them actively involved in the swine industry. If you would like to become a sponsor of this program, contact the WPA office at 608-723-7551 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Sponsors are posted on our website, Facebook page, our Headlines newsletter, and our Pork Express email newsletter.
