Area students may apply for Greenawald Scholarship

Friday, August 11, 2017 by The Press in Focus

Applications are available and being accepted through Aug. 12 for students eligible to receive the $1,000 Greenawald Memorial Scholarship presented at The Great Allentown Fair in honor of former Fair President William F. Greenawald.

The annual scholarship was established and first presented in 2015 by Patricia Greenawald and her children commemorating her husband’s longtime devotion to the Fair prior to his passing in 2008.

Eligible candidates must have exhibited at least one year in any of the Fair’s blue-ribbon competitive entry categories that are annually judged and on display.

Students to be considered must be high school or vocational school graduates that have been accepted for admission by a two or four-year accredited higher-education or post high school vocational institution.

The scholarship committee is seeking demonstrated scholarship ability, leadership qualities and involvement in student and-or community activities.

Mrs. Greenawald and her family will award the scholarship at the Fair during the Agricultural Recognition Awards ceremony Aug. 30 in the Agri-Plex.

Applications are available at the Allentown Fair Office, located behind the Ritz Barbecue on the Allentown Fairgrounds, 17th and Chew streets, Allentown, during office hours 9 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays.
