INVESTING IN OUR YOUTH
Lambton County Plowmen's Scholarship Fund
The legacy of Lambton County’s highly successful 1991 International Plowing Match (IPM) is continuing to help deserving students in Lambton County continue their post-secondary studies.
Bryan Boyle, a Lambton IPM ’91 committee member, noted that following the IPM the local committee decided that the money would be invested and only the interest be dispersed in the form of scholarships for deserving Lambton County students in their second year of post-secondary studies.
That way the legacy of the 1991 IPM can live on in perpetuity with these scholarships.
In 2022, the fund announced the three scholarships it awards annually will now be $2,000 each – double the value awarded in recent years.
