Mary Buczynski Memorial Livestock Grant

Mary Buczynski Memorial Livestock Grant

Over the years, Mary Buczynski cherished visiting The Bloomsburg Fair to see the passions and successes of the youth. She loved touring each of the livestock barns, filled with animals and their dedicated handlers, examining the joy, frustration, and excitement as the youth 4-H and FFA members prepared for the day of showing ahead of them. The stories that she heard from the young members about their projects brought joy to her life. In her legacy, this grant was created in order to open the doors for the local youth to pursue their dreams and share their passions through animal stewardship.

The applicant applying for this grant must be a member of the 4-H or FFA as well as show an animal at The Bloomsburg Fair. This $300 Mary Buczynski Memorial Livestock Grant will be awarded to one individual who displays a financial need and/or needs assistance in the financial costs behind purchasing, feeding, raising/caring for, and showing livestock.

Applications should be submitted to The Bloomsburg Fair Office prior to September 1st, 2021.
