Purdue Extension: Expert Resources for COVID-19

Starke County Fairboard Scholarships

April 15, 2021

Attention 4-H Senior Members:

As a chapter of your life comes to a close this summer and you are starting to embark on new opportunities we encourage you to draw upon those skills and knowledge you learned through the 4-H program in Starke County. Those traits will always be there for you to call upon when you need them in your future.

The Starke County Fair Inc. Board of Directors believes in those traits and encourages you to use them in your future to further your educational opportunities. To assist in this effort there have been two scholarships established in the memory of two men, William Barbknecht and Todd Troike, that also believed in the importance of the 4-H Program and the youth involved. In their honor, two scholarships are awarded to two graduates each year.


Attached below is the full letter mailed mid-April 2020 to all Senior 4-H members and a copy of the application for you to complete. The application is due to the Extension Office by Wednesday, May 12th. A reference form is requested to be submitted with the application. The application can be dropped off at the Extension Office, mailed in, or emailed to
