“The scholarship committee saw a significant increase in scholarship applications from years past and received 65 very qualified applicants,” says Meredith Pittenger, North Dakota 4-H Foundation executive director. “I was incredibly impressed by the goals and aspirations of our 4-H members. The future is very bright for 4-H’ers in North Dakota.”
