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.

4-H and FFA youth are eligible to apply for a $50.00 scholarship used to offset costs associated with their 2020 pig project. Scholarships will be awarded in three age divisions, as follows:  Ages 9-12, 13-15, and 16-19 (as of January 1, 2020).  Thanks to support from pig breeders throughout the state, a minimum of thirty $50.00 scholarships will be awarded this spring.
