Visitors at the Farm Progress Show Raise Funds for FFA Chapters and Illinois FFA

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (AgPR) | During the 2023 Farm Progress Show, the FS System sponsored an activity to drive donations from the GROWMARK Foundation to the Illinois Association FFA and five local FFA chapters. Throughout the three days of the show, FFA chapter members and community supporters were invited to check in at the FS tent.

For every check-in cataloged, the Illinois Association FFA earned $1.00 up to $5,000, while the five chapters with the most check-ins earned $1,000 for their local programs. The donations will be made by the GROWMARK Foundation on behalf of the FS Cooperative System. Each member cooperative will present checks to the local FFA chapter listed below.
