Dear FFA Alumni & Supporters and Friends of FFA,

In order to make a difference, we relied on two major fund raisers, The NYS Maple Producers Conference in January and the NYS Farm Show, Bob Watson Toy Auction at the NYS Farm Show.   The support of the NYS Maple Producers and the toy auction attendees have been able to help fund these grants and scholarships over the last three years.  Then, like many events over this past year, our January 2021 Maple Conference and our February 2021 Toy Auction was cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions set in place by NYS.  Now more than ever, we are looking for your support and other fundraising opportunities.  

FFA Alumni & Supporters play an especially important part in keeping agricultural education and FFA programs in our local schools.  FFA relies on its alumni & supporters to garner support for FFA from their local communities, raise funds for state & chapter activities and scholarships, assist at FFA leadership camps and conferences, and support Agricultural Education programs across NYS.  In supporting these programs, the NYS FFA Alumni & Supporters have developed and managed several scholarships and grant opportunities supporting FFA students across the state. 

FFA Activities Grants program, sponsored by the NYS FFA Association provides funding to agriculture students to attend FFA sponsored programs, such as National Convention, State Convention, Leadership programs, and Camp Oswegatchie. 

The NYS FFA Alumni & Supporters Scholarship program is open to all graduating high school seniors pursuing a career in any Agriculture field, while the Bob Watson Future Leaders in Agriculture Scholarship is available to undergrad students pursuing their master’s degree specifically in Agriculture Education.  New this year is the Victoria L. Pinney Gregory Undergrad AG ED Scholarship, sponsored by Vicky Gregory, also given to undergrad students pursuing a career in Agriculture Education.

Your support is needed to continue this important work and to champion New York’s future agriculturists.  Despite the challenges we face because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have to be persistent when it come to educating our youth.

Sincerely,

Paulette Schiebel – President

NYS FFA Alumni & Supporters
