WPA Announces Pig Project Winners
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 03/07/2018

The Wisconsin Pork Association has announced the winners of its 2018 youth pig project program.

Twenty-three $50 scholarships were presented to Hannah Blackstock, Glen Flora; Cody Dooley, Ettrick; Kaleb Ellis, Independence; Emma Ginard, Campbellsport; Ryan Mahoney, Suring; Blake & Clint Mitchell, Boscobel; Audrey & Victoria North, Platteville; Sawyer Pederson, Ettrick; Emma Schampers, Ixonia; Cullen Schlewitz, Eau Claire; Amber Seitz, Krakow; Nick Sievert, Sobieski; Gunnar Sperle, Cambridge; Heidi Strey, Osseo; Lance, Levi, and Madison Vosberg, Cuba City; Lily & Rayna Wangler, Watertown; Kathryn Witzel, Columbus; and Elizabeth Zimmerman, Osseo.

The Wisconsin Pork Association Youth Committee developed the program to assist youth in developing pork production projects for 4-H or FFA. The committee wanted to enhance project development, while hoping to educate more youth on careers available within the Wisconsin pork industry.

To apply, Wisconsin youth submitted a Pig Project Scholarship request to WPA which addressed project goals, a simple budget for the project, Pork Quality Assurance certification date, future goals as they relate to the pork industry, and a paragraph stating why the Wisconsin Pork Association should select them for the Youth Pig Project.
