Seven awards offered annually. The Klussendorf Association will award three scholarships, and the McKown/Klussendorf Fund will award four scholarships.
Applicants must demonstrate leadership, participation in extracurricular activities, and a special interest and ability in showing dairy cattle in their best natural form.
