HUTCHINSON, Kan. — A Hutchinson teen is one of 10 that received a Kansas State Fair Grand Drive Scholarship during the competition held last weekend at the fairgrounds. Becca Paine was awarded one of the scholarships as part of the Grand Drive livestock show.
The event was the second of three weekends of competition for youth to show their livestock in absence of the fair this year.
The program, which started in 2019, offers 10 $1,000 scholarships to any past or present exhibitor of the Kansas State Fair Grand Drive that is enrolled in secondary education and who graduated high school in 2020 or before.
Applicants were required to submit their high school & post-secondary grade reports. The applicant also had to write an essay describing their experience in showing livestock at the KSF Grand Drive and provide two letters of recommendation.
