The Bureau Valley FFA would like to extend many thanks to all of our Illinois FFA Foundation and Bureau Valley FFA chapter sponsors who have made this past school year a huge success.
Your support is vital to the success of our local agriculture program. Chapter sponsors have contributed not only financial support but also time and supplies. Through the continued support of local individuals and businesses FFA members have participated in leadership workshops, conventions, contests and community service projects.
Our Foundation drive raised $1,650 just over our $1,500 goal for the year. Funds collected during the Foundation drive will be placed in the general fund of the Illinois Foundation FFA. The Foundation supports programs including: public speaking, parliamentary procedure, career development, and events such as livestock judging, crops judging, horticulture, agriculture mechanics and summer FFA leadership camp.
By far, the largest program funded is the Illinois FFA Foundation Award competition. Awards are presented in 51 award areas at chapter, section, district and state levels. Award areas include production agriculture as well as agribusiness areas.
Thank you to all chapter and Foundation FFA sponsors.
On behalf of Bureau Valley FFA, Manlius
