FFA chapters from Missouri and Tennessee are the big winners in a documentary and portfolio competition sponsored by Monsanto.

More than 265,000 FFA members in 3,800 FFA chapters across 15 states began competition in the 2013 Chapter Challenge in January. To enter the competition, FFA members had to either interview and document the lives of agriculturalists in their local communities or build a portfolio of interviews, develop a social media plan and produce a video that promotes agriculture awareness.

Entries were submitted to the National FFA Organization and judged in March by a panel of marketing, communications and education professionals.

FFA chapters in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin were eligible to compete in the 2013 event.

The Cameron High School FFA chapter in Cameron, Mo., won grand prize in the interview and documentary division while the Siegel High School FFA chapter in Murfreesboro, Tenn., won grand prize in the portfolio division.

The two grand prize-winning FFA chapters earned both a $2,000 certificate of credit with the National FFA Organization that can be used to cover FFA-related expenses throughout the year and an all-expenses paid trip for up to six students and their FFA advisor to the 2013 National FFA Convention & Expo in Louisville, Ky. Each grand prize is valued at $12,000.

The top FFA chapters in each division of the competition earned a line of credit for use on FFA expenses, including supplies or convention and conference registration fees. Those prizes ranged from $2,500 to $500. Overall, Monsanto provided nearly $300,000 in prize money for the FFA chapters competing in the 2013 Chapter Challenge.

“I have no doubt that our members made new and meaningful relationships with those in their community who make their living in agriculture and we’re thankful for the opportunity that Monsanto has created to give FFA members such an experience,” said National FFA Organization CEO Dr. Dwight Armstrong. “The projects our FFA chapters submitted were outstanding and proof that agriculture is alive and growing throughout the U.S.”

“FFA shapes the future generation by creating a strong foundation through agriculture education,” said Monsanto customer advocacy outreach manager Elizabeth Vancil. “Monsanto is proud to team with the National FFA Foundation to help FFA chapters advocate for agriculture and create bonds with the people who grow our food and build our communities.”

The National FFA Foundation is the fundraising arm of the National FFA Organization, which provides leadership, personal growth and career success training through agricultural education to 557,318 student members in grades seven through 12 who belong to one of 7,498 local FFA chapters throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
