This new scholarship program has been established by the South Dakota Cattlemen’s Foundation to recognize that the future of the beef industry lies in the hands of youth who have a sincere interest in the industry. Funds raised at the Prime Time Gala & Concert will help to fund these scholarships.

After review of 40 applications, the following individuals were selected as recipients of scholarships and listed in alphabetical order:

• Brianna Buseman – Canistota, SD

• Kiera Leddy – Stockholm, SD

• Jonathan Linke – Woonsocket, SD

Scholarships of $4000, $3000, $2000, $1000 will be awarded to these four students and the amounts will be announced the evening of the Prime Time Gala.
