Manitoba Canola Growers Association (MCGA) has awarded $1,000 scholarships to five deserving high school students.

This year’s winners are Brooklyn McRae of St. Andrews, Janik Grenier of Notre Dame de Lourdes, Kate-Leigh Heapy of Oak River, Lindsay Wytinck of Glenboro, and Sydney Gerelus of Shoal Lake.

The scholarships are available to students who are from an MCGA-member farm and are planning to attend post-secondary education in any field within two years of graduating. 

Students submitted their applications and were judged by an independent panel based on academic standing, canola connection, references, essay submission and school and community involvement.
