(TRENTON) -- The New Jersey Equine Advisory Board has announced a $1,000 scholarship to help 4-H and FFA members, as well as any young adult that is a member of a New Jersey Equine organization represented on the New Jersey Equine Advisory Board, pursue their equine activities.
The Sara Dubinin Scholarship, in memory of Sara Dubinin, who loved horses, will be presented at the New Jersey Bred Equine Breeder Awards Dinner on January 15, 2012 At Charley’s Other Brother Restaurant in Eastampton.
Sara, a Sayreville resident, graduated from Cardinal McCarrick High School in South Amboy in 2006. The 19-year-old was attending Middlesex County College when she succumbed to injuries suffered in a motor vehicle accident in September of 2007.
Those interested in receiving the scholarship must submit an essay on, “How horses have affected my life and how horses figure into my future.” Consideration of applications will be weighted upon the candidate’s financial need.
The deadline to submit the essay is December 1, 2011. It can be submitted to Debra Moscatiello at (609) 984-4389 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
