I will also review Texas FFA Scholarship requirements

This is a SENIORS only event. RSVP that you are attending and I will have your login info ready to go! If you don't RSVP it will just take a little bit for me to find your info.
Collin County Master Gardeners Scholarship
The CCMGA awards one annual $2,000 scholarship to a graduating high school senior who is a verifiable resident of Collin County, plans to attend a Texas college or university, and intends to major in a horticulture related field such as Botany, Entomology, Environmental Science, Environmental Studies, Forestry, Horticulture, Landscaping, Agricultural Sciences, and Ag Leadership & Development.
Below are several different agriculture camps. Plano West FFA does not sponsor or attend these events as a group. We just want to share so you can continue your agricultural education over the summer. Many have early deadlines (like January) so please review and apply!
