United Cooperative, based in Beaver Dam with locations throughout Wisconsin, introduced their 27, $1,000 scholarship winners during their annual meeting and informational meetings the week of April 15.
Seventeen of the scholarships were awarded to students majoring in an agricultural field, and three were designated to students attending a technical school or short-course program. The remainder was presented to a mixture of majors.
