Kewaunee County Farm Technology Days was a huge success for our community, with a wonderful host family, record number of volunteers, and amazing attendees. Now, the Kewaunee County Farm Technology Days Executive Committee would like to give back to the community in the form of grants.
Grants will be awarded based on applications received by the Executive Committee. Grant guidelines and application can be found online at fyi.uwex.edu/kewauneeag or at the Kewaunee County Extension office located at 810 Lincoln St in Kewaunee. Grant funds awards will be a maximum of $5,000 per application. The deadline for submitting a proposal is Monday, October 1, 2018. Grant proposals can be dropped off at our office or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Executive Committee has already given $103,000 to 20 local charities that volunteered during the show. The committee will also be setting up a scholarship program, and a Legacy Community Project. For more information please visit our website at Kewaunee.uwex.edu.
