Farm-City Scholarship Campaign

  

 

The Farm-City Committee thanks you for being a crucial partner in our annual agricultural programing. We are sad to announce that we are unable to host our 2020 Annual Farm-City Banquet due to the ongoing pandemic.  We are proud to offer the Farm-City Scholarship awarded annually to a student(s) that is pursuing a degree in agriculture or agribusiness through a two or four year institution. It is still our committee’s desire to continue raising funds for these students especially in these trying times. 

 

Please consider contributing financially towards our Farm-City Scholarships.  All of the funds collected will be awarded to one or more Lebanon County Students using all donations from your generosity. As a donor, you will be entered to win a prize just for participating. These prizes are listed below. This is our way to say, “thank you” when we cannot be together in our normal ways, but this effort will also showcase our wonderful Lebanon Community and continue the future of agriculture.

 

Prizes include:  

 

Handmade Quilt - Spin Star Multi 102x114 ($250 value), generously donated by Farm Credit

 

 

John Deere Replica Play 730 Tractor with Barge Wagon ($70 value), generously donated by Fulton Bank
