According to BTI, six, $1,000 scholarships will be available to FFA students in its six BTI locations of Bucklin, Pratt, Greensburg, Great Bend, Ness City and Hoxie.

Students must be a senior FFA member, plan to attend a 2-4 year program to pursue any area of agriculture and have a minimum 2.5 GPA to apply for the scholarship.
