Whitney Wiemold is our 2018 Half Chrome Scholarship winner

Her winning scholarship video entry focused on how drones and the evolution of UAV technology can have a positive impact on our society. By using drones to help survey fields, farmers will be able to find wet spots, locate poor drainage and spots where crops have nutrient deficiencies.  Whitney hopes to use UAV technology to help improve crop yields.

As the technology improves, the hope is that we will be able to produce more food on fewer acres. Whitney is studying and working hard to do her part to end hunger and UAV technology is going to help her do that. Congrats to Whitney and best of luck to you. We hope that our $1000 scholarship will help you on your way. Keep up the good work.

We will be offering another scholarship soon…
