Scholarship Winners Announced

MACD is proud to announce the 2016 recipients of our annual scholarships. The scholarships are for Montana high school seniors or students already attending post- secondary education in Montana with an intended study in the field of natural resources. We received 13 applications this year (a recent record) and it was a difficult decision for the review committee as all candidates were excellent. Because of the number and caliber of applicants this year, it was decided to award a third scholarship.

Congratulations to the following recipients of this year’s scholarships:

Kelsie Field, Beaverhead Conservation District, currently attending University of Montana-Western and studying Biology and Environmental Science

Shawna Pratt, Custer County Conservation District, currently attending Montana State University-Bozeman and studying Chemical and Biological Engineering.

Cole Norskog, Judith Basin Conservation District, currently attending Stanford High School and planning on attending Montana State University-Bozeman in fall 2016 to study Animal Science: Livestock Production.
