(The CCJLSA has the final determination of how many scholarships will be offered each year and how much each scholarship will be worth. These decisions will be made by the association based on available funds raised. Scholarship recipients will be selected from applications received from FFA Booster Clubs and the 4-H Extension office. If the schools and 4H program do not fulfill their 3 scholarships, the unfulfilled scholarships will be placed in a pool. The remaining scholarships will be awarded to those students who qualify based on a ranking system but were not selected in the first round of awards. Winners’ 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 receipt from the school they are attending and a thank-you note to the association in order to receive payment. Expiration of this scholarship award is April 1st of the following year the award is originally made. No scholarship monies will be awarded until after these two things are complete.
