Ag Day at the Capitol


On March 19th, Nevada Union and Bear River FFA chapters teamed up and took a bus ride down to California's State Capitol to celebrate Ag Day and take a stand for Agriculture education. In Governor Browns' latest budget for California, all funding for the Ag Incentive Grant was cut. Every high school with an active FFA chapter in the state (about 312 schools) is able to qualify for the $4.1 million grant and many chapters thrive off the funds this grant provides. Without this grant, many chapters will have to cut back on their activities they have and conferences they attend. On March 19th 1,800 FFA members representing more than 125 chapters rallied at the Capitol to help save FFA. Members of Nevada Union FFA were given the opportunity to visit with many elected officials and tell their stories about Agriculture Education and how it has affected each of them personally as well as participate in a press conference advocating for AB2033. They were able to speak with officials like our own assemblyman Brian Dahle and Senator Jim Nielson from District 4. Members were able to stand on the assembly floor and even caught a glimpse of the governor himself. The day was huge success and our chapter is looking forward to seeing if these efforts paid off!
