2017 Agricultural Literacy Challenge
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.
Fifty-Four percent of Minnesotans say they have never met a farmer, but they are still involved in agriculture by eating food and wearing clothes. FFA members have the opportunity to share agricultural knowledge with others, so we can all understand where the things around us come from.
MAITC is a cooperating source for materials and activities. More information available at: http://www.mda.state.mn.us/kids.aspx.
