See the Latest Educational Resources, Play My American Farm Games and More at the Foundation’s Trade Show Booth

News / FBNews November 18, 2016

Once again, the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture’s booth at the Annual Convention & IDEAg Trade Show offers much to see and do. Check out the Foundation’s newest educational resources, buy books, educator guides and Ag Mags, play My American Farm games, and learn about the Purple Plow Challenge.

In honor of the Foundation’s 50th anniversary, we will be hiding 20 golden tickets around the booth and at other Foundation events. The lucky attendees who find a golden ticket will receive a special experience to share with a guest.

Similar to last year, the Foundation will hold a State Challenge. Donate in the booth and the top state in each membership group will be placed in a drawing for our newest educational resources. These donations will directly help teachers get educational resources for their classrooms. A new Teacher Resource Grant will be set up in 2017 with the funds raised during Annual Convention.
