Scholarships offered

Dakota Community Bank and Trust Scholarship Program will award 11 students annually with a post-secondary scholarship starting in 2020.

The scholarship is available to North Dakota high school seniors who demonstrate community or school involvement and plan to enroll at a university, college, or vocational-technical school full time in the fall.

Consideration for this scholarship is based on a point system including participation in extracurricular activities, school organizations and the local community as well as a brief essay.

The deadline for the 2020 scholarship application is March 1.

Recipients announced

Elizabeth Neshem, of the North Dakota Stockmen’s Association, and Shaundra Ziemann-Bolinske, of NDSU Extension Burleigh County, received $350 to $500 mini-grants from the North Dakota FFA Foundation to promote agriculture in North Dakota classrooms.

The program, called Ag in the Classroom, was designed to bring agriculture to all types of K-12 classrooms and learning environments.

To encourage the continuation of programming, curriculum and lesson planning, the ND FFA Foundation will provide these mini-grants through two separate academic years.

Applications will also be available in September 2020 for this year’s recipients and others to apply for new or additional funding for the 2020-21 academic year.
