The purpose of the Dairy Shrine Student Recognition Award for Seniors is to recognize and reward graduating university or four year college seniors who are planning a career related to the dairy industry or production agriculture and who have demonstrated leadership skills, student activity participation, academic ability and interest in the dairy industry. Each university can nominate up to two students for this award.
Tomorrow’s dairy leaders are here today, in classrooms, dairy youth organizations, at dairy competitions and on dairy farms across the country. The Dairy Shrine’s task is to encourage, stimulate and inspire them. Since its inception, Dairy Shrine has recognized the importance of laying a foundation for the future, and has constantly expanded its youth programs to capture and challenge the interest of outstanding dairy youth.
All Dairy Shrine scholarships and student awards are only for U.S. students attending schools, colleges or universities in the United States and majoring in dairy or other agricultural related fields.
