Culver's announces FFA Essay Contest

Enter your essay by June 3 for a chance to win a trip for your FFA chapter to the 2016 National FFA Convention.

The Second Annual Culver’s FFA Essay Contest invites FFA members to write an essay to enter for the chance to be one of the chapters that Culver’s helps send to the National FFA Convention & Expo in Indianapolis, Oct. 19-22. The top three essay writers will receive $7,500, $2,500 and $2,500, respectively, to help fund their chapters’ trips.

The essay 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.

“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. 

FFA members interested in entering the Second Annual FFA Essay Contest should visit and submit an essay of 1,000 words or less about how they see modern technology impacting the agricultural industry and their ag careers. The essay contest ends June 3, 2016, at 5 p.m. CDT, and the winners will be notified in late June.

Last year’s essay contest prompted members to write about the importance of advocating for agriculture. The winning essay was written by Hailey Hampton, a member of the Mackay, Idaho, FFA chapter, and discussed taking the time to understand and appreciate farmers for all that they do. You can tag along with her chapter’s 12-day, 15-state trip to Louisville.
