Ag Leader Supports National FFA Organization
Ag Leader’s Kelly Kopsa joined the sea of blue corduroy that took Indianapolis by storm for the 85th National FFA Convention October 24-27. According to the National FFA Organization, “Nearly 55,000 FFA members and guests gathered to learn about careers in the agriculture industry, compete for scholarships, volunteer in the community and shape the future of the National FFA Organization.”
Seeing the value of agriculture education in the youth of America, Ag Leader Technology has sponsored the Emerging Agricultural Technology contest for the past 4 years. This year’s contest winner was Carson Vinyard (third from right), of Oklahoma FFA. Kopsa (second from right) presented the award on behalf of Ag Leader.
The Agricultural Proficiency Awards program recognizes outstanding student achievement in agribusiness gained through establishment of a new business, working for an existing company or otherwise gaining hands-on career experience.
