Students that have been active members of the FFA or 4-H during at least 2 years of high school were able to apply for a $1,000 scholarship from the Polk County Area 'Go-Texan' Committee.

That committee is ready to pay that $1,000 to 36 individual students on Thursday. (March 22nd, 2018)

The Polk County Area Go-Texan committee is pleased to announce this year's scholarship recipients. Each student will receive a $1000 to aid in furthering their higher education. The awards will be presented at the Barney Wiggins Arena in Livingston.

The recipients in grades 9-12, also had to meet requirements such as having applied for a college or vocational trade school, hold excellent current academic standings, and met the minimum testing scores of the ACT or SAT outlined in the application.

Here are the 2018 Go-Texan Scholarship Recipients below. We'll have pictures of the presentation ceremony after Thursday. Congratulations to all these hard working teenagers.
