Corn Capital Innovations (CCI) was formed in Olivia, Minnesota by Steve and Summer O'Neill in 2008. The family-owned business is an industry leader that helps crop producers develop innovative farm plans that integrate the four components of profitability: crop insurance, grain marketing, financial analysis, and yield building strategies. The O'Neills and many CCI employees are proud 4-H alumni.

The review committee will evaluate applicants based on scholastic achievements, career interest area, community and 4-H involvement, and leadership roles and positions.

A) CCI Scholarship application form and essay.

B) Official copy of current high school transcript.

C) Two letters of recommendation: one from a teacher or academic advisor and one from an Extension educator, program coordinator, or club leader.

D) One individual photo (black and white or color, between 2x3" and 4x5"). The photo will be used for publicity if you receive the scholarship; it will not be returned.

E) Application must be typed only

F) Application is accepted by mail only.

Award notices will be distributed in June. The scholarship award check will be made payable to the institution that the recipient is attending, not to the recipient.
