The Bell County Youth Fair Scholarship Committee is proud to announce the 10 recipients of scholarships totaling $50,000 awarded to local high school seniors. These students represent the top applicants of the numerous students that participated in the Bell County Youth Fair. The Bell County Youth Fair Association hosts thousands of projects by local 4-H, FFA, and FCCLA youth annually in the competitive events. The scholarships are the culmination of years of hard work by the hundreds of volunteers who annually host the Youth Fair Livestock Show.
