The Harvest Festival and Livestock Show will provide scholarships for outstanding FFA or 4-H club members. The top scholarship winner will be awarded the 4-year Albert Horaney Memorial Scholarship.

Officials of the Harvest Festival and Livestock Show will disburse the scholarship funds after completion of each semester and upon receipt of the college transcript for the semester completed. Scholarship winners may attend any accredited junior or four-year college. One vocational school scholarship will also be awarded.

Harvest Festival Scholarship students are responsible for submitting their transcripts of twelve or more earned college credit hours (minimum 2.0 GPA cumulative) to receive scholarship funds for that semester. If student hours are under the minimum (i.e. 2.0 GPA) no scholarship funds will be distributed for that semester, to that student.

Students must attend semesters consecutively or the scholarship will be forfeited. If there are extenuating circumstances, the student must contact the committee for approval.

Payment requested for scholarship funds must be submitted on or before the beginning of the next semester, or funds will be forfeited.

Copies of transcripts from previous semester must be received at Shannon Fell, 904 North Sixth Street, Longview, Texas 75601 before the funds will be distributed.

For additional information on the two scholarships, CALL 903-236-8429.
