The Wyoming FFA Foundation is seeking applicants for its annual scholarship offering.
Among this year’s offerings is the Andrea Lohr Live by Faith Scholarship, which will be presented to an FFA member who shares his or her story of how someone has made a positive difference in his or her life.
Friends of Agriculture Industry and Recreation is again partnering with the Wyoming FFA Foundation to offer a scholarship to an FFA member who has multiple years of experience exhibiting projects at the Wyoming State Fair.
Applicants will be asked to share their State Fair experience.
The Wyoming FFA Foundation is also gathering scholarship applications on behalf of the Wyoming Ag Business Association. The Association will present a $500 scholarship to a student continuing his or her higher education in Wyoming.

New in 2014, a scholarship has been created to memorialize past Wyoming FFA Officer Teddy Weekly, whose family will select the recipient based on an essay exhibiting their willingness to help fellow FFA members.
Beyond the college scholarships, two entities that support Wyoming FFA are helping ensure the program’s members can attend the Washington Leadership Conference. Tri-State Generation and Transmission and Basin Electric will help four FFA members attend the conference this summer.
A portion of the Wyoming FFA Foundation’s scholarship offering is dependent upon annual donations.
If you’d like to join the effort to help Wyoming FFA members achieve their college goals please contact Jennifer Womack, Wyoming FFA Foundation executive director, at 307-351-0730.
Complete details, including application materials, are available from FFA advisers across Wyoming or online at www.WyoFFAFoundation.com. Scholarship recipients will be announced during the Wyoming FFA Convention to be held April 7-10, 2014, in Cheyenne. An awards reception is planned for April 8.
