This year's Bobby Bragan Youth Foundation scholarship winners and finalists were honored Sunday, April 15th on the campus of the University of Texas at Arlington. This year saw a record 225 finalists who participated for the chance to receive a $2,500 scholarship--a 19% increase in participation over last year. Ultimately, 37 winners were chosen from the finalist pool.
