Every time Culver’s says “welcome to delicious,” they express their passion for fresh, wholesome food — for today and the future. The National FFA Organization shares the belief that teaching smart farming can ensure our future food supply. To show their support, Culver’s is once again hosting an essay contest through their Thank You Farmers Project. The deserving chapters will receive a monetary prize.
Culver’s supports our country’s future agricultural leaders through their Thank You Farmers Project. They are rewarding funds to three FFA chapters to use toward agricultural education initiatives, including attending the National FFA Convention & Expo Oct. 30 to Nov. 2, 2019.
- First place: $7,500
- Second place: $5,000
- Third place: $2,500
If your chapter doesn’t need the funds to attend the National Convention & Expo, they can also be used for an educational project or initiative.
For a chance to win, the chapter must submit an essay of 1,000 words or less responding to the following prompt by April 8, 2019, at 5 p.m. CST. Students must be active FFA members in the 2019-2020 school year to be eligible to enter this contest.
The essay contest question: The average age of a farmer is 58. Why is it important for more young people to get involved in agriculture? Why should they be excited to join the industry?
To enter, complete the form on their website, which can be found here.
The Thank You Farmers project works to make sure that there continues to be enough good, wholesome food to feed our country’s growing population. Since 2013, Culver’s and their guests have helped make a difference by donating nearly $2 million to agricultural education programs, like FFA, that encourage smart farming — the advancements we need to produce a greater amount of food with the same resources.
