For many 4-H and FFA members, the organizations have helped students across the country become great neighbors. Now Tractor Supply Company wants to hear your story.
The largest rural lifestyle retailer in the United States, Tractor Supply has launched its first ever ‘Great Neighbor’ essay contest. The competition is a new component of the retailer’s Mobile Fair Tour — a 19-stop journey across the United States that will begin its route June 8 in Illinois and conclude Oct. 22 in Arkansas.
Beginning Friday, March 24, Tractor Supply is asking 4-H and FFA members living in or near one of its 19 fair stops to submit essays in response to the following question: What does 4-H/FFA mean to you, and how has your organization allowed you to be the best neighbor you can be in your community?
Tractor Supply will use the essay contest to select five winners per fair stop to be recognized during a special ceremony at their respective state or county fair. Winners will be presented with a commemorative certificate and TSC gift pack.
“We are excited to kick off this new contest, targeted to 4-H and FFA youth who play such an important role in the communities we serve,” said Tractor Supply’s Director of Store Marketing Lisa White. “It’s an honor for TSC to recognize their hard work and passion around making our communities all they can be.”
Eligible 4-H and FFA members have until Monday, April 24, at 5 p.m. CST to submit an essay.
