WPA Announces Pig Project Winners
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 03/05/2015

The Wisconsin Pork Association has announced the winners of its 2015 youth pig project program.

Eleven $50 scholarships were presented to Abigail Helbach, Amherst; Blake Doran, Brodhead; Leah Huchthausen, Stoughton; Ella Lawton, Eleva; Ethan Kohlman, Plymouth; Taylor Schaefer, Franksville; Cody Matyka, Rib Lake; Samuel Jacque, Thorp; Molly Manthei, Waterford; Wanda Kunde, Oshkosh; and Jonathan Troiola, Eagle.

Another four youth were selected to receive a $75 buying credit from one of four show pig producers. The buying credit is an added benefit to the youth participating.

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.
