South Dakota Farm Bureau (SDFB) is pleased to announce six winners of the 2018 SDFB Scholarship.

Each winner is awarded a scholarship of $1,100. Recipients include high school seniors and college students whose parents or guardians are current members of South Dakota Farm Bureau, and have been for at least two years.
