Introducing PennAg Prime
 
PennAg Prime is an exclusive PennAg-endorsed insurance program for members. It delivers coverage packages specifically designed to address the needs of all aspects of agriculture and food processing.

PennAg Awards Scholarships to Industry Youth

Ten students recently received scholarships from PennAg Industries Association, totaling $13,500. The PennAg Scholarship Fund, supported by members and friends of the association, is funded primarily through the annual Divots for Degrees Golf Outing. The 2017 outing was held at Four Seasons Golf Club in Landisville.

Since its inception in 1991, the PennAg Scholarship Fund has awarded more than $313,500 in scholarships to children of our industry’s employees. To be eligible for a scholarship, applicants must be enrolled in a post-secondary educational institution and work for a PennAg member or be a child of a PennAg member. Applications for the 2018 program will be posted on the PennAg website (www.pennag.com) beginning Jan. 1, 2018. A committee of PennAg Board Members judge eligible applications for academics, activities, essay and interest in pursuing a career in agriculture.

Congratulations to the 2017 PennAg Scholarship recipients!
