LITTLE ROCK, AR – The Poultry Federation (TPF) will host its 23rd Annual Allied Industries Scholarship Auction on Friday, June 15, 2018 in conjunction with the 59th Annual Poultry Festival.
For over 20 years, TPF has provided scholarships to deserving young people interested in pursuing a degree in the poultry and egg industry. All proceeds from the auction are applied to the 2018-2019 Allied Industries Scholarship Fund.
In 2017, the Federation raised $107,205 for the Allied Industries Scholarship Fund through the participation of attendees at the auction. A total of $155,000 was awarded in scholarships for the 2018-2019 academic year.
“We are proud of the commitment our poultry and allied members have to ensuring the scholarship auction is a success. Our members have stepped up this year through donating several new items to the live auction. We are projecting a record number of attendees at our auction and are hopeful we will exceed our fundraising goal of $125,000” stated Marvin Childers, President of TPF.
