A truly outstanding set of applicants in our 2021 Distinguished $20,000 Sullivan Supply/Stock Show University Scholarship program. 1,211 applications from 45 states and Canada proves that the interest of our Ag youth runs deep. It’s a blessing now more than ever to be a part of this great industry and to see this generation flourish in the barn, show ring, in academics and their communities. A huge thank you to our scholarship selection committee of industry leaders (non-Sullivan Supply employees or family members) who spend so many volunteer hours choosing our 20 winners. Congratulations to all our winners and applicants. Over $260,000 has been gifted to young individuals since the inception of this program in 2008.

 
Sincerely,
John Sullivan, Founder Sullivan Supply and Stock Show University
