As a member of the MLNA (Missouri Landscape & Nursery Association), we enjoy knowing that we are supporting the growth of our industry, as well as the understanding of how our interaction with our environment effects our lives. We are excited to think about the new wisdom and innovation that will be brought forth by future generations, and are excited to see the MLNA continuing to bless these young leaders.
All interested Missouri horticulture students enrolled in a 2 year or 4 year college in the state are encouraged to send in their application before the deadline of November 15. Each year, MLNA presents a $1,000 scholarship. The MLNA Education Foundation is a 501(c)3. Funds are raised from the yearly Silent Auction and member donations. MLNA also supports the Future Farmers of America awards in landscape and nursery management studies with $500 annually. We are pleased to have past recepients become MLNA members.
The student selected for the scholarship will be notified and asked to appear at the MLNA Silent Auction which will be held during the Western Trade Show on Thursday, January 21, 2016 in Kansas City, MO. The scholarship will be presented at that time. A one year MLNA membership will also be given.
Applications need to be mailed to MLNA, P.O. Box 81, Bowing Green, MO 63334 or emailed to email@example.com
David Gunn, a student at St. Louis Community College-Meramac is the 2014 scholarship recepient.
