Coming Soon: Incredible FFA Chapter Contest 2018!
The American Egg Board will kick off its second Incredible FFA Chapter Contest on January 15, giving FFA chapters across the country a chance to win one of two $1,500 grants and a $2,000 grant. Last fall’s contest had more than 525 entries. Stay tuned for more.
Last year, Rio Rico FFA was one of the runner-ups in the competition. Here is what they do with laying hens:
The mission of the Rio Rico High School Agricultural Education Program is to improve the quality of life of the people of Santa Cruz County, Arizona through programs which provide fruits, vegetables and eggs to the community. Working together with local social clubs, civic organizations, food banks and national hunger relief organizations, they are determined to wipe out malnutrition locally, and through this grant will secure more resources, such as a 100-hen laying coop, to provide for their community.
