Wisconsin FFA Clubs Invited to Take 'Chapter Challenge'
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 01/31/2013
FFA members in 15 states, including Wisconsin, are now being invited to participate in the 2013 FFA Chapter Challenge presented by Monsanto. The Chapter Challenge is a third-year program that challenges FFA members to make meaningful connections with local agriculturists.
As part of the program, chapters can enter one of two contests. The first requires FFA members to interview and document local agriculturists who then vote for a chapter. The other requires FFA members to build a portfolio of agriculturist and community member interviews, develop a social media plan and film a
video promoting agricultural awareness.
Two FFA chapters, one from each contest area, will win the grand prize to attend the 86th National FFA Convention & Expo in Louisville, Kentucky later this year.
Other prizes will be awarded to each state's top ten FFA chapters in either category.
"FFA and Monsanto are both delighted to bring the FFA Chapter Challenge in 2013," said National FFA Foundation Director Rob Cooper. "This program encourages FFA members to better understand local agriculture, see a variety of potential careers and exhibit the great qualities of FFA members everywhere
to the public."
Winners of this year's Chapter Challenge will be announced in early April.
