Minnesota FFA has a number of Chapter Award programs that allow for FFA members and chapter to recognized for their excellence in service, spreading agricultural literacy and successful completion of the chapter's Program of Activities.
The Minnesota FFA Agricultural Literacy Challenge is a program that encourages FFA chapters to teach others about agriculture. The intent of this program is to increase agricultural awareness and knowledge among people of all ages. Some ideas include: educating elementary school students about where their food comes from or teaching adults and seniors citizens about the vast industry of agriculture. All forms can be found at: http://www.mnffa.org/Programs/ChapterAwardPrograms/AgLiteracyChallenge.aspx.
The Land of Service program recognizes an FFA chapter's excellence in service to their school, community and members. This program focuses on total hours of service performed in one year. Award applications are due to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 1st. All forms are found at: http://www.mnffa.org/Programs/ChapterAwardPrograms/LandofService.aspx.
