Gracie’s Scholarship

Seldom in one’s life does one meet a truly dynamic personality. We all had the privilege of meeting such a spirited soul. That person was Grace Honigsberg. She was not just involved in Agriculture, Agriculture was her way of life, and her life’s passion.
She was very active in Sussex County 4-H as a member in her youth and as a leader of several livestock clubs as an adult. She was the 2013 Sussex County Youth Agricultural Ambassador and a member of the Sussex County Board of Agriculture and received the Next Generation of Agriculture Award in 2015. She was a member of the NJ Farm Bureau and served as past president of the NJ Young Farmer’s and Ag Professionals. Her passion for agriculture led her to travel nationally, representing the state of NJ at several American Farm Bureau events, with a focus on accurate agriculture education.
It is in Gracie’s honor that the Sussex County Board of Agriculture announces the formation of a new yearly Agricultural Scholarship of $500 a year to any student focusing on her/his education in the field of Agriculture. If you are interested in continuing your Agriculture education this scholarship is open for you, college or technical school, student or adult. For more information and application, please contact your high school guidance counselor or Lori Space-Day.

Plan Ahead

This is open to youth beyond 4-H!
