Bobcat Contracting will award eight to ten steer scholarships to Hill County students in Texas.
Scholarships are available to students who will be in grades 3-12 during the 2019-2020 school year. After review of all applications, the scholarship recipients will be awarded $2,000 each to help with the purchase of a steer to be shown at the Hill County Fair. An additional $500 will be awarded after the calf is brought to the Hill County Steer Validation & the required exhibitor paperwork is completed. It is our goal to help families raise kids by providing opportunities to raise steer projects for the Hill County Fair. Born & Bred in Hill County prizes have also been raised to $1,500 for grand and $750 for reserve grand to encourage buying locally. This is not required, however.
Students should return a completed application form along with a short essay to the address below on or before March 1, 2019. Scholarship recipients will be notified by the end of March & initial awards of $2,000 will be distributed upon notification. After the steer has been validated at the Hill County Validation, the scholarship recipients will receive the remaining $500. Good luck to everyone and see you at the fair!
