Farm to Table Programming for Kids

Attention Educators, Students & Community Leaders!  

We invite you to share an arts-based scholarship opportunity for BIPOC students who plan to continue their studies at the post-secondary level. Barrel & Flow Fest and Farm to Table Buy Local have partnered to form art + biz, a cooperative program that joins artists across platforms and scopes with local businesses. As an extension of this initiative, we are seeking applicants for five (5) $1,000 scholarships for students across a five-county region (Allegheny, Beaver, Westmoreland, Washington, and Butler).   Graduating seniors who plan to study digital art, graphic design, fine arts, music, musical performance, drama/theatre, culinary arts, dance, cinematography and film, interactive media design, drawing, integrative arts, visual arts, photography, or a similar field are encouraged to apply online through a Google form.  

To apply, students can link directly here via a shortened hyperlink: or visit and click “Scholarship” to apply. The deadline for the application is June 30, 2021, and winners will be announced in July 2021.   Please click HERE for a detailed description of the scholarship requirements and share with students, staff, and fellow educators across the region.
