Culver's Essay Contest to Send FFA Students to Convention
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 04/28/2016

Culver's is holding its second 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 have their local chapter's expenses covered during this year's National FFA Convention & Expo in Indianapolis.

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 the trip.

"Not only is this contest a way to show our support for FFA, but it's also a great opportunity for Culver's to hear firsthand from members about so many important agricultural topics," said David Stidham, vice president of marketing at Culver's.

Students interested in entering the competition can visit http://www.culvers.com/essaycontest to submit an essay of 1,000 words or less about how they see modern technology impacting the agricultural industry and their ag careers.

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 June 3.
