Each spring, Wisconsin Pork Association offers youth pig project scholarships to assist youth with their 4-H or FFA pig projects. The program encourages youth to become involved in the Wisconsin pork industry, provides opportunities to develop life skills, and exposes youth to the many career paths available within the industry.

Wisconsin 4-H and FFA youth ages 9 to 19 are eligible to apply for the scholarship. Applications will be available in December 2019.
