Bismarck, ND -- The NDFB Promotion and Education Committee announced eight individuals have been awarded $1,000 scholarships through the NDFB Foundation. The money is raised through an auction at the NDFB Annual Meeting in November. Auction items are donated by county Farm Bureaus and volunteers.
“This past year we had to try something new and hold our scholarship auction online due to COVID restrictions,” said NDFB Director of Organizational Development Joey Bailey.
Pifer’s Auction and Realty generously hosted the online auction on their website.
“We’d like to thank all our members who helped make the auction a success,” said Bailey. “It means so much to us to be able to award these deserving students to help further their education.”
