Available to Webster and Frederic Students

My son, Zac, and I are Webster High School graduates. Deb and I returned to this area from the Twin Cities to raise our family.  Benson Ace Hardware in Webster is the continuation of a hardware store, established in 1967, that we purchased in 2002. In 2015, with Zac as general manager for our company, we opened our Frederic store.


To  encourage and support area seniors considering a career in the trades, Benson Ace Hardware is proud and happy to announce Benson ACE Helpful Place Scholarships, an annual program for Webster and Frederic high school seniors. Our first scholarship recipients will come from the Class of 2020.


  • Each year, Benson ACE Helpful Place Scholarships will present $500 SCHOLARSHIPS to two Webster seniors and two Frederic seniors
  • ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS are a grade point average 2.5 or higher, and plans to attend a technical/trade school, or work as an intern/apprentice with an employer in trades like HVAC, plumbing, electrical, engine/auto repair, welding or construction.  
  • Interested seniors can obtain an APPLICATION from the Webster or Frederic counseling office, or by clicking on the green button (see right).
  • APPLICATIONS are due no later than APRIL 1, 2020.


To help support the education of any student considering a skilled profession, Benson Ace Hardware will award the scholarships by drawing names from completed applications. 

We decided to draw names because we believe success is possible for anyone with hard work and a can-do attitude, along with some prayerful thought and a little bit of luck. 


Recipients will be recognized during the schools’ annual awards night events held during May. Scholarship checks will be issued to recipients following 90 days of confirmed technical/trade school attendance, or 90 days of confirmed employment as an intern or apprentice. 


We look forward to awarding our first scholarships and helping support the next generation of students pursuing careers in the trades.
