The Hopkins/Rains County Soil and Water Conservation District, sponsor of the annual Hopkins County Hay Show, extends scholarship opportunities to area youth in agricultural studies. Kyler Moore was the 2020 recipient of a $1500 scholarship.
The 2020 Hay Show will be held on Tuesday October 20 inside the Hopkins County Civic Center, with a bbq lunch at 11:30am and the hay show to follow. Hay entries are due by October 5th at the Northeast Texas Farmers Co-op. Contestants will receive a free hay analysis when they drop off entries. All proceeds from the hay auction go towards the scholarship fund. Scholarship applications will be sent to Hopkins County school ag departments in spring 2021.
