Once again the Town and Country Fair will award at least two $500 college scholarships.

These scholarships are funded 100 percent by the exhibitors themselves from a 1 percent deduction in all Blue Ribbon Auction checks.

Scholarship applicants must be seniors in high school and must have exhibited livestock of any species, market or breeding, at the Washington Town and Country Fair at some time before their senior year.

Applicants also must be residents of Franklin or an adjoining county.

Applications are available through the guidance office at the high schools or at the Washington Commerce/Fair office. Digital copies also can be requested by emailing office@washmofair.com or can be downloaded from www.washmofair.com.

Completed applications must be received no later than March 31, 2014.
