Floyd County Junior Stock Show Scholarship Program
The Floyd County Stock Show Scholarship program was initiated in 2002. The purpose of the scholarship program is to reward the years of hard work by the High School Senior Exhibitors who have showed at the county shock show three years. Through this great program, the board of directors hopes to help further the exhibitor’s higher education at a college, university or a trade school.
The individual scholarships awarded initially were in the amount of $500.00. Now due to the support of the Floyd County community, these Scholarship have increased over the years to $750.00 in 2010 and to $1000.00 in 2011.
The board of directors of the Floyd County Junior Stock Show Assn. is very proud to be able to offer the individual scholarship program which is funded by various raffles throughout the years.
