NEW MILFORD — The directors of the Harford Agricultural Society are continuing their scholarship program for college students who have been affiliated with the fair either through 4-H, working, or exhibiting at the fair.

In addition to the one-page scholarship application, two letters of recommendation and an essay are required. The essay is not to exceed two pages double-spaced and should explain “ways in which I have participated in the Harford Fair and how winning the Harford Agricultural Society Scholarship Award will impact my education, my major, and my career goals.”

Funds for the scholarships are raised through the auction of the first and second place prize-winning baked goods exhibited at the fair, private donations, and special events at the fair.

This year, the baked goods will be auctioned at 6 p.m. Monday, Aug. 22 in the Shade Pavilion. This is a change from the past in order to accommodate more people to participate.

More information and the application, which is due Sept. 1, 2016, can be found online at HarfordFair.com or can be picked up at the Harford Fair office on the fairgrounds.

Scholarship winners selected from this year’s applications will be recognized at the Harford Fair Banquet in October, 2016.
