WSSP Youth Scholarship
For several years, WSSP has been collecting funds designated for a Youth Scholarship program. In 2005 we awarded our first scholarship to a college-bound student. Although members contibute to this fund throughout the year, the main bulk of monies raised are by donation of a ewe lamb sold at the Ram and Ewe Sale each year in Moses Lake.
