Wisconsin Junior Hereford Association

FOL Scholarship Available Through WJHA

The Wisconsin Junior Hereford Association is sponsoring a $400 scholarship for one Wisconsin Junior to attend the Faces of Leadership Conference. FOL is an activity that helps juniors develop leadership skills and meet fellow Hereford juniors from around the country. This year FOL will be held on July 29 – August 1 in Columbus, OH. Junior members, parents and advisors from all parts of the country participate in the event each year. During the three-day event, close to 100 participants listen to nationally known speakers and participate in junior board workshops, which assist in the enhancement of the individual's leadership talents, communication skills and beef industry knowledge. If you are a member of the WJHA and are interested in attending this year, use the link below to get a scholarship application or contact BJ Jones at bj@wildcatcattle.com.

Applications due May 15, 2020.
