A $1,000 grant has been awarded to FFA member Shaeley Warner of Utica, OH by Caterpillar.
Grant Requirement: For applicants from TX, CO, NE, KS, MO, IA, MN, ND, SD, OH, and KY who have or wish to begin an SAE in Beef Production.
The SAE Grant is designed to help FFA members create and enhance their supervised agricultural experience (SAE), a requirement that all FFA members must compete. An SAE requires FFA members to create and operate an agriculture related business, work at an agriculture-related business or conduct an agricultural research experience. Upon completion, FFA members must submit a comprehensive report regarding their supervised agricultural experience (SAE).
Shaeley Warner is a member of the Utica FFA Chapter of Utica, OH, and was selected from hundreds of applicants nationwide. She plans to use this grant to attend AI (Artificial Insemination) School, so that she can AI her own cattle and expand her cattle herd.
The National FFA Organization provides leadership, personal growth and career success training through agricultural education to 649,355 student members who belong to one of 7,859 local FFA chapters throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
