March will be when the Kewaunee County Farm Technology Days Committee will release thousands of dollars in scholarships and grants to local individuals and communities following a successful 2017 event. The announcement made during Tuesday’s Kewaunee County Board meeting comes months after the committee donated over $100,000 to local groups that volunteered during the three-day show. Executive Secretary Aerica Bjurstrom says there are no specifics yet, but the committee has decided how the funds will be divvied up.
Farm Technology Days attracted over 20,000 visitors to Kewaunee County last July with 100 percent of the show’s profit going back into the community.
