The Eastern Idaho State Fair, in partnership with Butler Amusements, Inc., offers annual scholarships to graduating seniors in FFA and 4-H programs. To qualify, students must be graduating from high school that current year with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 and must have participated in the previous year’s Fair as a 4-H or FFA member. After accounting for these qualifications, recipients are chosen based on personal and professional goals, student activities, community service, honors and awards, and financial need. Students in the following counties of the 16 County District Fair are encouraged to apply: Bannock, Bear Lake, Bingham, Bonneville, Butte, Caribou, Clark, Custer, Franklin, Fremont, Jefferson, Lemhi, Madison, Oneida, Power, and Teton. The annual scholarship is announced in January with an April deadline. See below for a list of past recipients and check back in January for next year’s scholarship application.

Congratulations to our 2014 scholarship winners!
