Nebraska Corn Board strong supporter of Nebraska FFA


2013 Nebraska FFA Convention Results-no thank you list inc.pdf - Adobe Acrobat 4102013 40043 PM.bmpThe 85th Annual Nebraska FFA Convention was held in Lincoln last week. The theme of convention was Grow – and we’re sure that the FFA students had enough opportunities to grow while there!

The first event of convention was the Agricultural Issues Academy (AIA). AIA was founded three years ago by the Nebraska Corn Board, Nebraska Corn Growers Association, Nebraska Cattlemen, Nebraska Pork Producers and A-FAN. Additionally in the last two years, Nebraska Association of Natural Resources and Nebraska Soybean Board supported the Academy. AIA is an opportunity for Nebraska FFA members to learn about the issues involving Nebraska Agriculture. Thirty-five students were selected for the AIA to learn about issues in agriculture that most interest them. Students took part in round-robin sessions and learned how to speak to lawmakers, share a positive message in TV and radio interviews and learned about written and online communications.
