2020 Scholarship Opportunity Now Available
Update - The scholarship deadline has been extended to July 1, 2020. Applicants will no longer be required to be present at the drawing to be eligible to win. Instead, a virtual live presentation will take place on the North Dakota State Fair Foundation Facebook page on Wednesday, July 22, 2020 at 7:00 PM.
The North Dakota State Fair Foundation understands the importance of agricultural and competitive experiences for youth. The Foundation works to create multiple scholarships that are given to students who are involved in community activities; who demonstrate leadership, citizenship, and character; and have exhibited and/or competed in 4-H and FFA at the North Dakota State Fair.
There are six (6) $1,000 scholarships available to graduating high school students who have participated in competitive experiences at the North Dakota State Fair and who plan on continuing their education at any accredited post-secondary educational institution.
Students that apply and meet the basic scholarship requirements will be honored as the "North Dakota State Fair Graduating Class of 2020" and will be invited to attend the Friends of the Fair Reception during the 2020 North Dakota State Fair. At that event, six scholarships winners will be drawn from the eligible candidates. Applicants must be present to win.
Scholarship application deadline is July 1, 2020.

On behalf of the North Dakota State Fair Foundation with support from the Langer-Gokey family, we are pleased to present the $1,000 Scholarship Award Recipients for 2019! We received many worthy applications this year and these four individuals stood out with their past experiences at the North Dakota State Fair along with their future educational goals. Each of them along with two guests have been invited to attend the Friends of the Fair event that is held annually at the North Dakota State Fair where they will be recognized for their achievements.
Congratulations Addie Schnabel, Grace Solemsaas, Cayley Olson, and Allison Cross!
