The Minnesota FFA Foundation announced the 29 Minnesota students who will receive the James W. Tracy scholarship. The scholarship is available to Minnesota students who are enrolled or planning to enroll in an accredited post-secondary school and pursuing a degree in agriculture. The scholarship is scored on leadership, involvement, agriculture interest and financial need.

The scholarship is possible due to the generosity of James W. Tracy, a farmer from Dennison, who lost his battle with illness in 2014. Tracy had a deep love for the land, farming and the desire to support youth, which led him to donate his farm to the Minnesota FFA Foundation.

Tyler Erickson of Alden-Conger was a local recipient of the scholarship.
