Buena Vista County 4H & Youth

Local Highlights

January 17, 2014

The purpose of the Buena Vista 4-H Scholarship program is to provide financial assistance to a senior high school student that will be attending a university, private college or community college. As we are a non-profit youth education organization, we need to support our youth as they further their studies. Our most valuable asset is our youth and their future, so an investment in their future is a worthwhile effort.
