Recognizing and empowering dairy producers and our dairy youth is essential to keeping a vibrant future for dairy in Pennsylvania. Several scholarship programs are available to support dairy youth and other dairy leaders in growing their knowledge and skills.
Thanks to the tremendous support from the Pennsylvania Dairymen’s Association and the Center for Dairy Excellence Foundation of Pennsylvania, ten individuals have been selected as Student Leader Scholarship winners in 2016. To see this year’s scholarship recipients, click here.
