Jefferson FFA Student Wins GROWMARK Essay Contest
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 12/29/2017

Audrey Pelikan of Jefferson has been named the Wisconsin winner of the 2018 GROWMARK essay contest for FFA members. The theme of this year's competition was 'How can cooperatives demonstrate their value to the next generation of agriculturists?'

Pelikan is a student at Jefferson High School and a member of the school's FFA chapter. She will receive a $500 award from GROWMARK at the Wisconsin FFA State Convention this June, and her chapter will also receive a $300 award in honor of her accomplishment to help future students.

Meanwhile, four state runners-up will each receive a $125 scholarship. They include Kendra Gillett, Fall River; Peter Gorman, Manawa; Trevor Messmer, Lake Mills; and Madison Russell, Shullsburg.

This is the 25th year for the program, sponsored by the GROWMARK System and FS member cooperatives, in conjunction with state FFA leaders, to help young people develop their writing skills, learn about current issues in agriculture, and understand the unique role of cooperatives.
