The 2021 #SpeakAgMichigan CHALLENGE supported by the Michigan Foundation for Agriculture recognized the top 10 high school FFA chapters and top three Collegiate Farm Bureau members with cash prizes totaling $6,000.
From September to December, FFA Chapters and collegiate members engaged with consumers and built up their advocacy skills by designing social media campaigns highlighting designated commodities each month. The same commodities were the focus of FARM Crate subscription boxes
- September: Apples
- October: Pumpkins
- November: Turkeys
- December: Christmas Trees
From demonstrating a piece of equipment related to the commodity to visiting a farm and interviewing the farmer, offering a recipe or sharing growing tips, our top FFA chapter winners — as well as all additional competitors — spent time laying out a plan to accurately and effectively connect with consumers.
Help congratulate our winners and participants in both divisions by liking their pages and supporting their efforts!
