Innovacyn, the makers of Vetericyn animal care products, has awarded $2,500 scholarships to three FFA members:
* Isabella Curtoni attends Escalon High School in Farmington, Calif. She has competed in various sectors of FFA, was named a national finalist, and was awarded the Star Greenhand and Star Chapter Farmer awards.
* Katelin Walker, vice president of the North Clackamas FFA Chapter and president of the Mt. Hood District FFA in Oregon, won a gold medal in this year's FFA National Agriscience Fair.
* Brett Wilder of Meridian, Idaho, is the president of the Meridian FFA Chapter and the Boise Valley District FFA. He wants to study public policy.
More than 130 high school seniors submitted entries for the scholarships, which were open to current FFA members planning to attend a two- or four-year college in the fall. Applicants were judged on their answers to three essay questions, as well as their demonstrated commitment to the agriculture industry through classes, internships and life experiences.
