Student Scholarship & Farm Equipment Consignment Auction
It's that time of year again! The 32nd Annual Fayette County Farm Bureau Farm Equipment Consignment Auction is Saturday, March 21 at 9:30am at the Kentucky Horse Park.
We love our Fayette County Farm Bureau and supporting their local Consignment Auction every year - All proceeds go to the Fayette County Farm Bureau Education Foundation. Our family volunteers their time and efforts along with many others for a week - setting up, unloading machinery, auctioning pieces, loading machinery - in rain, snow, or beautiful sunshine, they get it done! Why would a group of people do something like this, you ask? Well, all of this hard work is to benefit a student scholarship in Fayette County!
The Fayette County Farm Bureau Education Foundation, Inc. awards a maximum of $20,000 in the amount of $5,000 per year. The scholarship recipient must demonstrate measurable academic progress toward earning a four-year undergraduate degree from an accredited college or university. Scholarships can be applied to tuition, housing, books, etc.
The event is open to the public and sells an average of 1,300 pieces of farm, lawn and garden equipment being consigned to the sale. This sale is the largest of its kind in Kentucky, and 100% of the proceeds go to the Fayette County Farm Bureau Education Foundation.
