The 15,000 hamburgers and the 11,250 bowls of ice cream served during the 2017 Farm Technology Days are long gone, but your college-aged students interested in agriculture can still benefit from the event now and well into the future. In addition to helping fund other projects in the county such as the Dana Farm Ice Rink in Kewaunee, the Andy Barta Legacy Show Pavillion in Luxemburg, and playground equipment in Algoma, Kewaunee County Farm Technology Days has funded over $18,000 in student scholarships. The committee hopes to award the $1,000 scholarship to approximately 70 students over 10 years. Kewaunee County Farm Technology Days Committee Member Aerica Bjurstrom still looks fondly on the community support the event received and the impact it still has years later.
The application window is now open for alumni from Algoma, Kewaunee, Luxemburg-Casco, Denmark, Southern Door, and Mishicot in the second half of their post-secondary school career. Applications can be found here and must be completed by January 31st.
