This fundraiser is put on annually by the Mazeppa American Legion to fund scholarships to selected graduating students in our community. This year the Mazeppa American Legion members hope to generate enough money to cover all eight scholarships. These scholarships are awarded to 3 college bound Zumbrota Mazeppa students, another 5 scholarships will be awarded to selected grandchildren of members of the Mazeppa American Legion. At the end of fourth quarter, graduating students are asked to turn in their GPA to a panel of five Mazeppa American Legion members to be carefully selected to hopefully receive a scholarship from this great group of individuals within our community. After selection the scholarships are then given to the Zumbrota Mazeppa Schools to disperse to the awarded students at a later date. The Mazeppa American Legion hopes to grow the number of scholarships awarded per year as our community continues to expand as well.
