We are honored to again be part of FFA’s biggest event of the year: the 89th Annual FFA Convention & Expo in Indianapolis on October 19–22. The convention provides an opportunity for us to meet with more than 60,000 students from across the country to celebrate their achievements and reinforce the need to work together to educate others about the importance of agriculture.
To kick off the four-day event, we are sponsoring the 2016 National FFA Convention & Expo Concert that features popular country artists Chris Young and Cole Swindell. If you’re an FFA member, be sure to register to come rock with us during this huge concert at Lucas Oil Stadium.
This year, we are teaming up with CSX, a leading transporter of agricultural products in the U.S., to exhibit at the Expo. Jeff Meyer, one of our franchisees in the Indianapolis area, and his team will also be at the booth to help us serve Fresh Frozen Custard to FFA members so don’t forget to stop by booth 1124!
We are proud to be a sponsor of the Milk Quality and Products Career Development Event for the third straight year. This event is a great opportunity for FFA members to work as a team to demonstrate their knowledge of the production and processing of milk and dairy products.
We’re also looking forward to visiting with Sierra W. from the Riverton Parke FFA Chapter in Indiana, Wyatt N. from the Parma FFA Chapter in Idaho and Hannah S. from the Seven Lakes FFA Chapter in Texas, who were the winners of this year’s Culver’s FFA Essay Contest. Each of these members wrote an essay that won them money toward a trip for their chapters to the 2016 National FFA Convention & Expo.
FFA members are important to the future of the agricultural industry. Learn more about how Culver’s supports the next generation of agricultural leaders. You can also visit the FFA Foundation and make a donation to support agricultural education.
