Ten scholarships will be awarded to the top five young men and the top five young women. The top five young women’s applications are the basis of which the candidates for Miss American Angus are chosen. Apply Now for an Auxiliary scholarship.
"The American Angus Auxiliary is honored and excited to continue the legacy of awarding the American Angus Auxiliary scholarships to 10 exceptional junior Angus high school seniors. By awarding these scholarships, we stand behind our mission to support the juniors as they grow into agriculture advocates," said Deanna Hofing, American Angus Auxiliary president-elect. "The American Angus Auxiliary scholarship application does not focus on one single component of a junior’s success but more importantly recognizes well-rounded applicants that are actively involved with the NJAA activities, their family livestock operations, communities, state organizations, leadership roles and their show ring achievements."
Scholarship applicants are judged on high school academic achievements, Angus awards and accomplishments, Angus leadership, other agricultural organization involvement, other organization activities, application of livestock knowledge and Angus experience, leadership and future and letters of recommendation.
"The American Angus Auxiliary scholarship program sheds light onto the Angus family's desire to support the next generation of agriculturalists and industry leaders," said Ellie Kidwell, 2021 Miss American Angus. "It is such an amazing opportunity for high school seniors, and I encourage everyone to apply."
NJAA members are nominated by their state or regional Angus association, and winners are announced at the awards ceremony during the National Junior Angus Show. For more information, visit the American Angus Auxiliary website
