Fund seeks applicants

The Don Diego Fund is accepting scholarship applications through April 2, 2010, for local high school seniors who have been involved in the San Diego County Fair.

Each scholarship is $5,000 and they will be awarded to one 4-H member, one FFA member, one former employee of the Del Mar Fairgrounds or the San Diego County Fair and a student who has exhibited at the Fair, Fairgrounds or Horsepark. Applications are available on the Fairgrounds Web site at www.sdfair.com.

The fund was created in 1986 and pays tribute to Tom Hernandez, who, in the role of Don Diego, was the legendary host of the San Diego County Fair from 1947 until his death in 1984.
