Tara Newton and Stephen Tillinghast Lead Agricultural Academic All State TeamMon, 22 Mar 2010 6:26:48 CDT
Over $147,000 was handed out Sunday night at the 2010 Oklahoma Youth Expo in the form of academic educational scholarships- with just over half of that going to the 14 young men and women who make up the 2010 Agricultural Academic All State Team, sponsored by Chesapeake Energy.
The All State program is designed to model athletic all-state programs in which a select few are recognized for their outstanding achievement and dedication to success. All were chosen based upon an application and an interview process.
The two top students in the competition receive $10,000 scholarships from Express Ranches, while the other twelve each receive $5,000 in scholarships. Another 32 students also were honored on Sunday evening with scholarships coming from a variety of groups and companies that have connected with the Oklahoma Youth Expo.
Tara Newton of Kingfisher and Stephen Tillinghast of Owasso were the winners of the $10,000 scholarships, and here are the other twelve members of the All State Team that received $5,000 apiece.
