The Southern Ohio Agricultural and Community Development Foundation Board of Trustees met recently at the Endeavour Center at OSU South Centers, in Piketon, to recognize the recipients of the 2015-16 Educational Excellence Competitive Grant.

The grant is a one-time grant of up to $7,500 which goes toward tuition, on-campus housing, lab fees and books to be used at an accredited institution. Applicants were scored by a committee on a combination of written essays and personal interviews.

Applications for the 2016-17 Educational Excellence Competitive Grant will be available at the SOACDF office or Farm Service Agencies in southern Ohio in late October.
