  1. Alpines International is offering a $250 youth scholarship to a youth, that is a member of Alpines International (just $15/yr). Contact Alpines International Club on their website or FB page for the application!

  2. Peggy Sanford says:

    Arbuckle Classic dairy goat club is giving scholarships for youth attending our show to have us pay for youth track. I do not have a head count yet as applications are due back to us July 1st. Can you tell me how much this will cost per youth so I have an idea how many youth we can sponcer? Thank you.
