Welcome NJHA members to the 2020 Fall Hereford Youth Foundation of America Scholarship and National Hereford Women's Queen Application Site

The Hereford Youth Foundation of America (HYFA) scholarship program is designed to provide recognition for outstanding members of the National Junior Hereford Association. Its purpose is to encourage individual and cooperative effort, enthusiasm, excellence, leadership, academic success and achievement among youth and to develop successful individuals as good leaders for both the Hereford breed and the beef industry. This coming year, HYFA will award more than $200,000 of academic scholarships to Hereford youth. Award presentations will take place virtually prior to the AHA Annual Membership meeting activities.
