The Nebraska Corn Board remains committed to providing the state’s FFA members with support to help further fuel their interest in agricultural education. Each year, the Board invests in the Nebraska State FFA Convention, sponsors proficiency awards and provides transportation for the state officer team as they visit high schools across the state.
“It’s a privilege to partner with Nebraska FFA,” said Kelly Brunkhorst, executive director of the Nebraska Corn Board. “It’s reassuring to know agriculture is in good hands with this talented group of individuals.”
Several activities are planned throughout the country to celebrate National FFA Week, including National Wear Blue Day on Friday, February 24. During this day, anyone can show off their FFA pride by wearing blue. For more information on FFA and National FFA week, click here.
