FFA Scholarships - Specific criteria for states and local chapters

Good Monday Morning!
I hope the week is starting out well for each of you. It?s a balmy 10 
degrees here. But it?s sunny. J
Each year, some of the national FFA scholarships are targeted to specific 
cities, counties or chapters.  Unfortunately, each year, we struggle to 
find adequate applicants to receive some of these scholarships.  We need 
your help. Could you please review the below list and work with local 
advisors to be sure that students are aware of and apply for these state 
and area specific scholarships. 
The scholarships below are broken down by state, followed by the sponsor 
and the counties and/or chapters selected.  Please urge advisors in these 
areas to strongly encourage their FFA students to fill out applications 
ASAP.  All applications must be postmarked by February 15, 2007. 
Additional details on these scholarships and applications can be found in 
the 2007 Scholarship Book and on the FFA website at  Thank you, as always, for the help.
Oh, almost forgot, GO COLTS!
As a reminder, Tulsa Welding offers two $1,000 welding scholarships per 
state, plus Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
