I’ve been a huge supporter of Culver’s for many years. From their delicious custard and butter burgers, to their “Thank You Farmers” campaign, to their ongoing support of the National FFA Organization, there’s a lot to love about this fast food chain.
Culver’s recently launched its second annual FFA essay contest, which will fund three FFA chapters’ trips to the National FFA Convention & Expo this fall. The top three essay writers will receive $7,500 for first place and $2,500 for second and third place, respectively.
FFA members are encouraged to submit a 1,000-word essay answering the question: How do you see modern technology impacting the agricultural industry and your ag career?
This scholarship program and essay contest follows closely behind Culver’s recent fundraiser, “Scoops of Thanks Day,” which has raised nearly $1 million to support the FFA.
I’m a firm believer in voting with my dollar, and any business that goes above and beyond to celebrate conventional agriculture, support our nation’s youth and foster a growing relationship between present and future food producers is one worth spending my money at.
I realize that many states don't have Culver’s restaurants; however, if you know of an FFA student in your area who has a knack for writing, consider sharing this blog post with your local FFA chapters to help spread the word. Cheers to Culver’s for its continued support of America’s farmers and ranchers! All of us in agriculture truly appreciate it!
