The Ontario Sugarbeet Growers’ Association wants to help the next generation of farmers.

The organization is looking for applicants for the Brian Fox Memorial Scholarship.

Chairman Mark Lumley says the scholarship is open to any student in Lambton and Kent that will pursue a post secondary education in agriculture. “In this case about 20% of it is their marks and the rest of it is volunteer attitude, contributions to agriculture and rural community,” says Lumley. “We’re just looking for some all-around good kids.”

A pair of $1,000 bursaries will be awarded. Deadline to apply is April 30.
