Home-SD 4-H Leaders - Making the Best Better!
This year we expanded the scholarship assistance program offered by the SD 4-H Leaders as follows:
A $50 scholarship is available to any SD 4-Her that was chosen at the state level for competing at the national level, where the trip is not funded by SD 4-H. This specifically excludes teams competing at Denver because this trip is funded by LITF (Livestock Industry Trust Fund). Trips specified to be eligible for the $50 scholarship are:
4-H members are required to attend the contest, come back and report on the trip to 2 groups, and then submit the request for the $50 scholarship.
Here’s how it works:
*Step 1 – Attend the event!
*Step 2 – Tell 2 groups about your trip. You may choose to tell your 4-H Club, your FFA chapter, a class at school, etc. Spread the word about the great opportunity you had to compete at the national level in 4-H!
*Step 3 – Complete the application form with all signatures and submit to the SD 4-H Leaders. You will receive your scholarship money within 2 weeks of its receipt. Applications are due by December 31, 2018.
Please be sure to complete all parts of the form! You must answer the “what did you learn” section and sign it!

Rural Youth Loan Program
Here is information about the Rural Youth Loan Program available to 4-H members. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) makes operating loans of up to $5,000 to eligible individual rural youths age 10 through 20 to finance income-producing, agriculture-related projects. The project must be of modest size, educational, and initiated, developed and carried out by rural youths participating in 4-H clubs, FFA, or a similar organization. For more information, leaders should contact their local FSA Office or visit http://www.fsa.usda.gov.
A one page fact sheet is available at: http://www.fsa.usda.gov/Internet/FSA_File/loanyouth.pdf.
Farm Credit has a similar program available for youth loans! You will find information on their website http://www.myaglender.com/youth-loans_5152_ct.aspx.
