Roy Andrews, President of the Western Oxford Agricultural Society, also known as the Fryeburg Fair, wishes to announce the fourth year of scholarship awards available to graduating seniors.
The WOAS has voted to give two awards, to be selected from the students who apply, to students who reside in the WOAS towns. The WOAS comprises the following towns: Fryeburg, Lovell, Stow, Waterford, Stoneham, Hiram, Sweden, Porter, Bridgton, Otisfield, Cornish, Baldwin, Standish, Harrison, Denmark and Brownfield in Maine; Freedom, Eaton, Bartlett, Chatham, Conway and Jackson in New Hampshire. The awards will be $2,000 each, and will be awarded to each of two graduating high school students who are pursuing further education in the fields of agriculture, forestry or earth sciences.
The awards will be given at the end of the 2017 senior high school year and the financial award will be given upon successful completion of two semesters of further study.
The information and application forms to apply for these awards are available in the guidance department of the six high schools which are included in the WOAS towns – Fryeburg Academy, Kennett High School, Lake Region High School, Bonny Eagle High School, Oxford Hills High School and Sacopee Valley High School.
