Win up to $7,500 for Your FFA Chapter
FFA members, we're proud to support our country's future agricultural leaders (that's you!). Through our Thank You Farmers Project, we're rewarding funds to three FFA chapters to use toward agricultural education initiatives, including attending the National FFA Convention & Expo Oct. 30 to Nov. 2, 2019.
First place: $7,500
Second place: $5,000
Third place: $2,500
If your chapter doesn't need the funds to attend the National Convention & Expo, they can also be used for an educational project or initiative.
To enter, submit an essay of 1,000 words or less responding to the following prompt by April 8, 2019, at 5 p.m. CST. Students must be active FFA members in the 2019-2020 school year to be eligible to enter this contest.
