No 'roll over' policy will be offered.

Scholarship recipients will be selected from applications received from FFA Booster Clubs and the 4-H Extension office. Winnersí names will be given to the organizations for recognition at their Awards programs. The recipients are then required to turn in a copy of their tuition payment for the fall or spring semester from the school they are attending and a thank-you note to the association in order to receive payment. Please send proof of tuition payment and thank-you note to: CCJLSA, P.O. Box 311976, New Braunfels, Tx 78131-1976.
