My Maryland State Fair is seeking applicants for the Maryland State Fair and the Marlin K. Hoff scholarship programs.
The Maryland State Fair Scholarship recognizes the importance of education and participation in the State Fair. Applicants must be permanent residents of Maryland and active participants in the 2016 State Fair. They must be currently enrolled in an accredited college/university or be a high school senior entering their college freshman year in 2016.
The applicant must complete an essay on the impact of their experience participating in the State Fair and how the scholarship will be beneficial in helping them with their career goals.
Nine winners will be selected and will each receive $2,000 in scholarship monies.
The Marlin K. Hoff $2,000 scholarship will be awarded to one Maryland youth enrolled in a four-year college, and currently or previously enrolled in a 4-H, FFA or breed organization dairy project. The recipient will be selected on the basis of involvement in the dairy industry, academic performance, leadership qualities, future goals and financial need.
Applications may be obtained at www.marylandstatefair.com. Completed applications and attachments must be postmarked no later than July 1. Recipients of the scholarships will be recognized at special ceremonies during the 2016 Maryland State Fair.
