Faircracker SUMMER 2019


Miami-Dade County Youth Fair & Expo Awards College Scholarships


MIAMI – June 4, 2019 – When the 157 recipients of the Miami-Dade County Youth Fair & Exposition’s 2019 Scholarship Program start college in the fall, they will have $1,000 more in their pockets to help them on their way to achieving their dreams. “The high cost to attain post-secondary education is placing an unprecedented fi- nancial burden on our young people. It is our hope that the scholarships will help


ease the burden for these students and their families. We applaud their high achievement and encourage them to do great things in their lives and in our Miami-Dade community, the country and the world,” said Eddie Cora, president and CEO of The Youth Fair. The scholarship recipients are graduates of public, private, charter, home schooling, alternative education and adult


vocational schools in Miami-Dade County. Eighteen of the scholarships will go to students planning a career in agribusi- ness. In addition, the Scholarship Program has provided six $1,000 scholarships to Florida International University students


who assisted with performing arts competitions during 2019 Youth Fair. For the sixth year, the Miami-Dade County Youth Fair & Exposition provided $6,500 in scholarships to the winners and finalists of the prestigious 2019 Elie Wiesel Foundation Prize in Ethics Essay Contest. Overall, Scholarship Program disbursements, prizes, premiums, awards and contributions totaled approximately $600,000. The Scholarship Program, created in 1958, affirms The Youth Fair’s commitment to education. Students who receive


scholarships are selected for outstanding dedication to academics and to school and community activities. To date, The Youth Fair has awarded well over $11 million to Miami-Dade County students to help them achieve higher education.
