INEF SILENT AUCTION Dear IGE Attendee, This year’s donations from exhibitor’s help fund the Indiana Nursery Scholarship Fund (INEF). INEF annually offers a scholarship to be awarded to a full-time student enrolling at Purdue University or Vincennes University in landscape horticulture. The scholarship recipient will receive 50% of their scholarship with the first installment at the beginning of their first semester. The final 50% of their scholarship installment will be awarded to the recipient at the beginning of their third semester provided they are still enrolled in landscape horticulture field at Purdue University or Vincennes University and have achieved a “C” grade average.

TRADE SHOW

The 2019 Indiana Nursery Endowment Fund aka Indiana Nursery and Landscape Association Scholarships has awarded two Scholarships for 2019. The following recipient Macy Ostler, of Franfort, Indiana received a total scholarship of $6,000.00. She will receive $3,000.00 her freshmen year and the and $3,000.00 her sophomore year, providing proper transcripts are sent to the INEF Board. The other recipient is Nicola MartinRojas, currently residing in West Lafayette, Indiana received a one-year scholarship of $2,500.00. Nicola is currently a sophomore at Purdue, therefore making her scholarship opportunity for just one-year. Both students are currently enrolled at Purdue University in the horticultural and landscape architecture field. Again, many exhibitors will donate an item or their booth contents to the INEF silent auction in an effort to generate proceeds for the scholarship fund. Auction bid tickets will be available on Wednesday, February 12, 2020 at the INEF booth # 435 on the trade show floor. The INEF booth is near the Landscape Challenge in Hall B. The bid tickets offers anyone wishing to bid on auction items from vendors inside the hall. The Landscape Challenge donated material will be held in a live auction at the INLA Annual Reception. Both the live auction material and “Silent Auction” material from the trade show floor will generate a substantial amount of money for future scholarship winners. The INLA Annual Reception will be in Wabash Ballroom 1 at the Indiana Convention Center on February 12, 2020 from 5:00 – 7:00 pm (ish). Both students will be recognized at the reception and will receive plaques for their scholastic achievements. Thank you for supporting this worthy cause!
