Potts Camp FFA Chapter receives grant
Thousands of FFA members from hundreds of FFA chapters in 12 states have finished a huge effort to connect with local farmers, and one local chapter has taken home a nice prize for their efforts.
The Potts Camp FFA Chapter received 61 votes from local farmers and placed eighth in the Mississippi standings. As a result, they’ll receive a $1,000 FFA Certificate of Credit to be used for FFA expenses like official FFA jackets, chapter supplies and registration fees for national FFA leadership conferences. The Potts Camp FFA Chapter is located in Potts Camp.
The Potts Camp FFA advisor is James Shannon.
The FFA Chapter Challenge, a second year program that expanded to 12 states in 2012, challenged FFA members to meet farmers in their local communities to build relationships and learn about different agricultural careers. After meeting, FFA members encouraged the farmers to vote for their chapter online or over the phone.
Monsanto sponsors the FFA Chapter Challenge as a special project of the National FFA Foundation.
“The mission of FFA goes beyond farming but its heart will always be in creating new generations of leaders who understand agriculture and small communities,” said Linda Arnold, Monsanto customer outreach lead. “Monsanto is proud to partner with the National FFA Foundation to help local chapters create that bond with the people who grow our food and build our communities.”
Voting for the 2012 FFA Chapter Challenge began Jan. 16. The second-year program expanded to 12 states this year, including Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, Tennessee and Texas. The campaign finished Feb. 29, with over 10,000 votes coming in during the final week of competition. The contest wrapped up just days after FFA members across the country celebrated National FFA Week, Feb. 18-25.
An impressive 856 FFA chapters participated in the FFA Chapter Challenge and nearly a quarter of them will be taking home a nice reward for their hard work. The top FFA chapter in each of the 12 states received a $2,500 FFA Certificate of Credit good for the FFA-related costs, while chapters ranked second through tenth in each state received credits worth between $1,000 and $2,000. Eighty other at-large chapters received credits worth $1,000.
