Middle River teen wins Minn. statewide biodiesel essay contest

By the American Lung Association | September 10, 2012

Morgan Dahl, a 2012 graduate of Greenbush-Middle River High School, has been named as the first place finisher of the Reuben Youngerberg Memorial Biodiesel Essay Scholarship, an annual scholarship open to all high school seniors in Minnesota. Dahl, the daughter of Donavon and Laura Dahl of Middle River, Minnesota, will receive a $1,600 check from the American Lung Association in Minnesota, which recognizes biodiesel as a “clean air choice” fuel. Dahl plans to attend the University of North Dakota and seek a degree in Early Childhood Education, with a focus on Special Education.

“I would like to thank the American Lung Association in Minnesota for giving me the opportunity to receive this scholarship, and for selecting my essay as the first place winner,” Dahl said. “The scholarship will definitely help pay for my college expenses. It truly means a lot to me.”

The Minnesota Soybean Research and Promotion Council sponsors the Reuben Youngerberg Memorial Biodiesel Essay Scholarship, with additional contributions from the Minnesota Soybean Growers Association, MEG Corp, National Biodiesel Board and the Renewable Energy Group.
