The Iowa Junior Beef Breeds Association (IJBBA) is excited to announce it is embarking on a new awards program for the Top 10 Overall Market Animal and Breeding Heifer Exhibitors beginning with the 2011 season. Each exhibitor will be eligible to receive an educational scholarship annually, and these scholarships can accumulate on an annual basis while the exhibitor is a member of the IJBBA. Scholarships will be available to the following institutions: Universities, Community Colleges, Vocational schools, and Trade schools. The recipients of these scholarships will have the opportunity to receive their scholarship proceeds over a maximum two-year period, with funds dispersed directly to the named institution. Scholarship money will be permanently terminated should the recipient not attend or drop from school.
