A big congratulations to our scholarship and art contest winners!
Every year the Sherwood Saturday Market offers Sherwood and Newberg area students the opportunity to apply for a $1000 scholarship in the categories of both art and agriculture. This is our way of giving back to the community that we love and continue the tradition of community support. The students applying must show a background of strong community support with an intent to further his or her career in agriculture or an art related field. The students must then submit a goal essay.
