The Illinois Beef Association will award one $3,000 scholarship in memory of past IBA Executive Vice President Maralee Johnson and her commitment to the beef and agriculture industry.

IBA youth can begin the application process for this scholarship to be presented at the IBA Summer Conference in June. The application can be downloaded at www.illinoisbeef.com and must be submitted by March 1.

Eligible IBA youth must be an Illinois resident from a family that is actively involved in beef production and currently an IBA member, attending or planning to attend a two- or four-year college, and must complete the application and write an original essay, “How I can impact the agriculture industry in the future.”
