Final Chance for FFA Members to Submit GROWMARK Essays
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 11/09/2017

The Wisconsin FFA has announced the theme of this year's GROWMARK essay contest for junior high and high school members. Students will be offering educated opinions on 'How can cooperatives demonstrate their value to the next generation of agriculturists?'

The contest, which is now in its 25th year, is sponsored by the GROWMARK System and FS member cooperatives, in conjunction with state FFA leaders. It is designed to help young people improve their writing skills and learn about current issues of agriculture.

Essays should be approximately 500 words, typed and double-spaced. The entry deadline for Wisconsin FFA students is November 10.

The state winner earns a $500 scholarship, and their FFA Chapter will get a $300 award. Four runners-up also win $125 scholarships.

GROWMARK is a regional cooperative providing agriculture-related products and services and grain marketing in the Midwest.
