Three States Awarded ‘My American Farm’ Kiosks

WASHINGTON, D.C., February 27, 2013 – Minnesota Farm Bureau was awarded a “My American Farm” kiosk at the American Farm Bureau Federation’s recent Joint National Leadership and Young Farmers & Ranchers Conference in Phoenix, Ariz. The winner of the kiosk was selected through tweets posted to the social media site Twitter.

The conference’s keynote speaker, Michael Abrashoff, selected the winner, asking attendees to tweet examples of how they put the leadership roadmap to work.

MFB member Malissa Fritz tweeted, “I am passionate about being a farmer, a wife, and a mom! But, as a leader it’s my responsibility to share that passion!” She won the kiosk for her home state’s Farm Bureau headquarters.

Two additional kiosks were given away at AFBF’s 94th Annual Meeting in Nashville, Tenn., in January. North Dakota Farm Bureau won a kiosk during a drawing at the opening general session and North Carolina Farm Bureau was awarded the second during the Foundation’s Night Out at the Grand Ole Opry House.

Kiosks feature educational games from the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture’s website. The site, resources and kiosk are made possible through the generous support of title sponsor, DuPont Pioneer.
