Culver's Essay Contest to Benefit FFA Students, Chapters
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 02/20/2018

Culver's is holding its fourth annual FFA Essay Contest this year. The Wisconsin-based restaurant chain says FFA members are being encouraged to write an essay for a chance to earn their local chapters money for leadership training and special events.

Contest organizers say the top three essay writers will receive $7,500, $2,500 and $2,500, respectively, to help their chapters cover the cost of attending educational conferences.

"FFA members are our future, and we want to do our part in supporting them and their education," said Jessie Kreke, senior marketing manager for Culver's. "This contest is always such a great way for us to connect with them on an individual level to hear what they're passionate about, and what they hope to accomplish in their careers."

Students interested in entering the competition can visit http://www.culvers.com/essaycontest to submit an essay of 1,000 words or less on what they want people to know about the National FFA theme, which is 'I can. We will.'

The contest is part of Culver's 'Thank You Farmers' program which recognizes how vital agriculture is to Culver's success, while providing financial support to young people who want to make a career in agriculture.

Essays are due by April 6.
