The Harrisburg and Garretson FFA chapters were recently awarded Grants for Growing funds by the National FFA Organization.

Only 152 chapters nationwide were selected to receive grants, according to a news release. Grants for Growing is a competitive grant program for FFA chapters that are developing and improving project-based or experiential learning opportunities for students. FFA chapters from across the country applied for up to $5,000 through the G4G program to support one of three areas:

  • Grow the Classroom: Support increasing students’ classroom knowledge.
  • Grow the FFA Chapter: Support the development or expansion of an FFA chapter and leadership opportunities.
  • Grow Ag Awareness: Support the development or expansion of an agricultural literacy event or campaign.

Grants for Growing is sponsored by Tractor Supply Co. with funding provided by consumers who purchase $1 paper emblems at TSC stores during checkout.
