The Hanover, Bentinck & Brant Agricultural Society has created two scholarships.

This is the first time they have offered a scholarship program to students.

Hanover Councillor and Ag Society member Steve Fitzsimmons says the two fifteen hundred dollar scholarships will support youth pursing studies in the agricultural sector.

The scholarships have been created in honour of the late Charlie and Mildred Martin who dedicated fifty years to the Agricultural Society.

Fitzsimmons strongly encourages eligible students to apply, the scholarship is open to students from Hanover, West Grey and Brockton who are pursuing or currently enrolled in agricultural studies.

He calls it a great way for the local Ag Society to give back to students entering the agricultural field.

The deadline for the scholarship submission is May 27th, providing students with plenty of time to prepare their applications.

The three thousand dollar scholarship (15 hundred dollars a piece) is the first of its kind for the Hanover, Bentinck and Brant Agricultural Society.
