National Corn Growers Association seeking agriculture leaders at FFA convention

The National Corn Growers Association invites attendees at the National FFA Convention, running through Saturday in Indianapolis, to visit their booth (1755) for information about membership and how to get more involved in the NCGA, including grassroots initiatives and scholarship opportunities.

“The National FFA convention provides an opportunity for NCGA to interact with the next generation of agricultural leaders and help them understand the importance of active participation in commodity associations,” NCGA Director of Public Policy Zach Kinne, who served as FFA national president in 2007-2008, said. “Having been actively involved in FFA myself for many years, I understand the optimism, energy and potential FFA members provide for the future of our industry. We are excited to help them engage with NCGA both now, as students, and as they move forward in their careers.”

Scholarship opportunities for NCGA members through a partnership with BASF are open until Dec. 2 and include five $1,000 scholarships for both undergraduates and graduate students entering the 2017-18 school year pursuing a degree in an agriculture-related field. The William C. Berg Academic Excellence in Agriculture Scholarship applicants must be entering at least their sophomore year of undergraduate studies. The rules and an application can be found on the NCGA website.
