MaxYield Cooperative annually makes scholarships available to graduating high school seniors and college students pursuing degrees in agriculture.
Students completed applications forms answering questions about their career goals and why cooperatives are important to agriculture. They also submitted essays titled "Why I selected agriculture as my career."
Local winners, who each received a $1,000 Ag Scholarship, included Brielle Smeby, Jace Pringnitz and Nicholas Hunt.
