Hurst Farm Supply is once again proud to partner with John Deere and the National FFA Foundation to offer six - $2,000 scholarships to area students. Scholarships will be awarded to one student from each of the following counties: Borden, Crosby, Hale, Hockley, Lubbock, and Lynn. Selections will be based on the applicant's leadership, academics, FFA and other school and community activities, supervised agricultural or work experience in agricultural education and future goals.

This year marks Hurst’s sixth year partnering with John Deere in the FFA Scholarship program, since John Deere’s initial partnership in 2013.  Over the past five years, The National FFA Organization has awarded more than $1.3 million in scholarships to more than 680 students courtesy of John Deere and dealers like Hurst Farm Supply.

“It is such an honor to be able to partner with John Deere in awarding these scholarships to local, well-deserving students.  Witnessing the growth and fruits of these students’ labor is very rewarding”, said Joe Hurst.

The application window is open from November 15, 2017 through February 1, 2018. Please visit the National FFA Scholarship Program website for the online application form and program details.https://www.ffa.org/participate/scholarships
