Wisconsin FFA Foundation awards SAE grants

Wisconsin’s FFA Foundation awarded a record number of Supervised Agricultural Experience Grants.  The Foundation’s Executive Director John Hromyak says 47 members from 30 chapters will receive $33,712 to either start or advance their SAE projects and says generous sponsors make the awards possible.

The SAE program places FFA students in situations beyond the classroom to prepare them for future career opportunities.
