The La Salle County Fair Association Scholarship is an annual scholarship offered to the youth of La Salle County. Beginning as a memorial scholarship in memory of Ben Alexander, it continues today as a memorial scholarship for community members. Monetary donations are accepted as memorials, along with funding from the fair to provide this service to some of our outstanding students in the area. The scholarship fund is one way for the community to show support of our youth and the fair.
Applicants receiving the scholarship must show participation in various aspects of the fair, financial need and service to our community.
