Captain John Yegge Memorial Scholarship (1 available scholarship for a boy)

Yegge Application

Now in its 9th year, the Captain John Yegge Memorial 4-H Scholarship is helping dreams come true.

This annual $200.00 scholarship has been established in memory of Captain John Yegge to recognize his love and compassion of "all" animals.  Each year, one boy and one girl are eligible for this award.  We are looking for students in the 4th-12th grades that have a love for animals but may not have the financial ability to start up a new small animal 4-H project.

Previous awards have helped local youth begin new projects caring for and learning about cavies, commonly known as guinea pigs, chickens, rabbits, goats and ducks. In each case the Yegge Scholarship has been a rewarding and gratifying experience to all who have been involved.

To be considered for the award, applicants must submit an application form and short essay explaining why you would like to have an animal.  Parental consent is required and may include a brief financial explanation.  Recipients must enroll in a 4-H club carrying the animal as a project and exhibit the animal at the Curry County Fair next summer.  The exhibit must identify the animal as being sponsored by the Captain John Yegge 4-H Memorial Scholarship.
