Central and Western Region State Staff and State Foundation Staff:

Please share the following across your state.

   1. The National FFA Organization is pleased to announce once again the
   Tractor Supply Company; Grants for Growing program.  Tractor Supply Company
   (TSC), in conjunction with many local FFA chapters, sold paper FFA emblems
   last month during National FFA Week at their checkout stands.  The money
   raised through this promotion by TSC is now available for minimum $500
   grants that ANY local FFA chapter can apply for.  The grant application is
   NOW OPEN for a two month period of March 2nd through May 1st.  All FFA
   chapters are eligible to apply.  *Being located near a TSC store is not
   required to apply for a grant.*  Find the grant application and more
   information at: https://www.ffa.org/grantsforgrowing.

   TSC Grants for Growing can fund projects in three areas for your chapter:
      1. Classroom – supplies, equipment, technology, curriculum, etc.
      2. Chapter – student leadership opportunities, member recruitment,
      community awareness, etc.
      3. Ag Literacy/Advocacy – educational outreach, marketing, etc.

   1. Announcing the 2020 Zoetis Industry Support Program.  This is the
   long-standing, very popular program in which FFA chapters connect with
   local animal health supply stores and/or local veterinarians that sell
   Zoetis animal health products.  In establishing this connection, FFA
   chapters are then the beneficiaries of a percentage of sales of select
   Zoetis products sold between February 1 and April 30, 2020.  A percentage
   of sales statewide can go to each state FFA foundation too based on local
   chapter signups and payouts.

To sign up, local chapters should set up a meeting with their local animal
health supply stores and/or veterinarians sharing their FFA chapter ID
number, advisor name, and chapter address with them and then asking the
store and/or veterinarian to finalize their enrollment at:
must be completed by May 7th to qualify.  Eligible sales of Zoetis products
dating back to February 1, 2020 will count towards the chapter support
final sum.

*Fine print/details:*

*Multiple chapters can be signed up with the same retailer to receive funds
of qualifying Zoetis products* sales up to 1 % of total sales in the sales
period, unrestricted funds, up to $1,000 on the sales of certain cattle and
equine products. *

*Back orders are not eligible for donation qualification. Donation checks
less than the minimum of $25 per chapter will not be processed. If more
than one chapter is selected and the donated amount is less than $25 per
chapter, the entire donation will be made to the first FFA chapter listed.
The FFA check will be paid to the FFA chapter designated by the
seller/retailer via a single check no later than Aug. 24, 2020. Zoetis
reserves the right to modify or discontinue this program at any time and
for any reason.*

Thanks for sharing these items in your state,
