Don Rodgers Memorial Junior Scholarship
In memory of Don Rodgers, BaRay offers a $500 scholarship to a junior showman participating in 2021-22 shows. One winner will be selected according to the following criteria:
1. Exhibit in a minimum of four all-breed junior showmanship competitions in 2021-22;
2. Be enrolled as a Junior or a Senior in high school for 2020-21 or 2021-22 school year;
3. Submit an essay to BaRay Events no later than November 20, 2022, stating GPA (as of end of school in June 2021), plus participation in school activities, dog-related activities, and community activities.
The winner will be chosen based on the essays, and announced at the Western Washington Cluster in January, 2023. Scholarships are for higher education only. Once the Junior is enrolled, the scholarship will be paid to their school. If the scholarship money is not claimed within four years after graduation from high school, it will be retained and re-offered by BaRay.
