ND Farm Bureau raises $10,000 for scholarships

FARGO, N.D. — North Dakota Farm Bureau Promotion and Education committee raised more than $10,000 for scholarships during a live auction at Fargo Brewing Company on Nov. 22.

The event was held in conjunction with the NDFB Annual Meeting, held Nov. 22-23.

"We could not be more thankful for all those who donated items, bought items and helped make the auction a success," said Joey Bailey, NDFB director of organizational development. "It feels good to be able to reward hard working students who are trying to better their education."

"This year, we wanted to do something special for NDFB members," said Jeffrey Missling, NDFB executive vice president and CEO. "Farmers and ranchers had a stressful year, yet NDFB members stepped up and showed their support for the future of agriculture. It truly shows how strong and amazing these people really are."

NDFB scholarship applications will be available online Dec. 15, and need to be turned into the Fargo office by March 15, 2020. For more information on the NDFB Foundation and scholarships, visit https://www.ndfb.org/foundation.
