Scholarship recipients of NWSTNational Western Scholarship Trust Awards $500,000 to Agriculture Students

The National Western Scholarship Trust is excited to announce a $100,000 annual increase to its scholarship fund, expanding the value to $500,000 and more than 100 recipients studying throughout Colorado and Wyoming.

Four major National Western Stock Show events contribute to the trust each year. These events include the Coors Western Art Exhibit & Sale, the Citizen of the West dinner, the Auction of Junior Livestock Champions and the Boots ‘n Business luncheon.

“Through the dedication and hard work of our Board, committees, staff and volunteers at the National Western Stock Show as well as the supporters of our event, we are able to provide even greater impact to students studying agriculture throughout the region,” said Paul Andrews, President and CEO of the National Western Stock Show.  “This is a great day for educating more youth in area colleges and as we continue to grow in the future, we plan to increase the scholarship support even more.”

“As a Trustee for over 20 years, I am amazed at the level of support we have received over the years which has allowed us to make this announcement today,” said Steve Bangert, Chairman of the National Western Scholarship Trust.  “I am truly honored that we are able to support the education of students that otherwise could not attended college.  These students will help preserve agriculture in society.”

Established in 1983, the NWST was formed to provide scholarships to students studying agriculture, rural medicine and veterinary sciences. Since its inception, the trust has awarded more than 2,000 scholarships and has grown to more than $8 million dollars.
