2021 Topic 

Your chapter’s Ag Communication Committee has been approached by your State FFA Association to help tell the story of a local FFA advisor. The story needs to be one that builds awareness, encourages agricultural advocacy, and promotes FFA engagement to a diverse audience group. You are responsible for selecting an FFA advisor from your state to promote/recognize via various media outlets. Your committee has the option to decide what is included in your media plan about this advisor. Your plan might include, but is not limited to, focusing on one or more of the following attributes of the chosen advisor: innovative program or teaching techniques; service/leadership in local communities or the state; providing a unique solution to a problem facing students/teachers in the community; a commitment to agricultural education; etc. Please remember that the plan should also focus on highlighting and promoting not only the advisor, but also agricultural education programs and/or the agricultural industry to audiences within your state.

Active FFA members from the same chapter in grades 7-12 may constitute a team of four members.

Media Plan Due Date

An electronic copy of the media plan in PDF format (no larger than 20 megabytes) must be emailed gseibel@vt.edu by June 10, 5 p.m. EST. A penalty of 10 percent of available media plan points will be assessed for any late submissions. If the document is not received seven days after the deadline, the team may be subject to disqualification. In addition, no chapter team changes will be accepted after June 10 for Agricultural Communications.
