4-H Canada Announces Recipients of $15,000 in Scholarships in Partnership with John Deere Canada

 
4-H Canada is pleased to announce the 2017 recipients of the John Deere Canada 4-H Scholarships. A total of 15 members of 4-H from across Canada were selected to receive $1,000 each towards a post-secondary education in the fall of 2017 thanks to the generous support of our partner John Deere Canada.
 
“We are grateful to John Deere Canada for showing their strong commitment again this year to building and strengthening our 4-H youth members,” said Shannon Benner, 4-H Canada CEO. “We are proud to build upon our long standing relationship with John Deere and with this latest scholarship we further solidify our position as the leading positive youth development organization in Canada.”
 
4-H Canada and John Deere fully recognize the importance of providing our youth with the tools and guidance that lay the foundations for a life-long love of learning. Over the application period, 4-H Canada not only received another record number of applicants but also the quality of those that applied continues to make the selection process harder each year. 
 
All this is made possible with ongoing and long-term partnerships with organizations like John Deere Canada that share this vision and actively strive to make a difference to positive youth development.
 
“John Deere Canada is always enthusiastic about investing in Canada’s youth and providing them the opportunity to explore their interests through post-secondary education,” said Arin Douglas, John Deere Canada ULC Marketing Representative. “John Deere Canada has been a long-time supporter and partner of the Canadian 4-H program. We are proud to again provide scholarships to 15 deserving 4-H members from across the country. We believe in supporting the next generation and are excited to assist these youth with their education goals.”
 
Congratulations and good luck to all the 2017 CIBC 4-H Post-Secondary Scholarship Recipients!
