Do you know any current FFA members? Here’s a challenge for them, courtesy of the Weeding out Hunger campaign, with the chance to win up to $3,000 for their FFA Chapter.
The Weeding out Hunger FFA Video Challenge asks FFA chapters to produce a video showcasing the role agriculture plays in feeding Americans, and the role they play in their school and community. The videos will be submitted on the Weeding out Hunger Facebook page starting February 1, 2011. Starting April 1, the public will be able to vote for their favorites to select the competition finalists.
We know these students are positively impacting their communities, and we want to share their stories. For example, one question these videos will answer is, “What does agriculture in your community mean to the nation in terms of providing food, fiber, feed and fuel?”
This challenge is part of the hunger relief initiative Weeding out Hunger, which supports local food banks based on sales of a residual corn herbicide. Pass it on…
