Greetings, Friends!

I thought I would take this opportunity to just remind you of a few Foundation details before you leave:
  • The Foundation will award the Cinch Academic Scholarship, as well as Foundation Scholarships to the Top Ten in the 8th grade qualifier Cinch Academic scholarship competition.  This applications are due to the Gist booth in the Trade Show no later than Sunday at 6:00 p.m.  Applications should be completed online, printed, signed and submitted with transcript/grade cards and other required documents, per the application. The fillable application is available on the NHSRA website at https://www.nhsra.com/programs/foundation-scholarships/webupdate_nhsrf-scholar-app-jh-cinch-18/ and on the NHSR Foundation website at https://img1.wsimg.com/blobby/go/19442bcd-e90b-475c-a8c4-63f6c490aace/downloads/1cckf1r9s_239889.pdf.  It is a very simple process, so please encourage your “Straight A’s” eighth graders to apply.  All of the necessary info is on the application.
  • The Foundation was able to fund the additional 8th grade finalists’ scholarships by adding “Daily Silent Auctions”, Monday through Friday, at the Foundation booth.  This is located in the Women's Building, along with the Official Posting Boards, Acentric Photo and Video, and the Rodeo Office.  Please consider bringing or have your contestants bring a few items for the Daily Silent Auctions.  Anything goes!  It does not have to be relative to your state or province, as we all try to do with the Crisis Fund baskets, although those are always popular items and they would be great for our auction, as well.  Suggestions are tack, jewelry, art, decorations, handcrafted items, tools, cookware, really anything!  As the week progresses, the interest increases, so please consider bringing something for these daily auctions.  We close at the end of each day, before the night perf, and open with a fresh set of items each morning.  It’s fun and it is a great fundraiser for scholarships.
  • Also, Monday through Friday, we sell 50/50 tickets at both perfs and draw at the evening perfs.  We do need volunteer parent and contestant and siblings help with 50/50 sales and there is a draw to determine which associations help on which days.  That 50/50 draw was included with the NJHFR Contestant Packets and I will also discuss this when the Directors meet on Saturday.
If you have questions on any of this - scholarships, Daily Silent Auctions, 50/50 Sales - or anything else about the Foundation, please email, call or text.  I am happy to assist.
