Oneida County Farm Bureau provides support for ag education

Posted

Oneida County Farm Bureau was pleased to present two agricultural education programs with $500 each to help further their mission of making a positive difference of the lives of students through leadership, personal growth and career success.

Remsen FFA and Waterville FFA were the recipients of funds raised from last year’s inaugural Ag Trivia Challenge Night.

Oneida County Farm Bureau is committed to providing quality opportunities, programming and education for local youth and this event served as a fun way to raise funds while bringing the community together with their farmer neighbors. 

“We are proud of the work of these two emerging programs and inspired by the students who are passionate about agriculture and are truly making a difference in our communities,” said Oneida County Promotion and Education Chair Karen K. Lohr.

“We know the money will be put to good use towards essential items including Blue Jackets and tools to help these kids thrive,” Lohr added.

The county Farm Bureau raised over $3,500 from last year’s Ag Trivia Challenge that has been allocated to local FFA Chapters, 4-H programming, Ag Literacy and Oneida County Farm Fest.

Lohr noted that they are looking forward to another successful challenge in December. 

The second annual Ag Trivia Challenge Night will be held at 6 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 1 at Daniele’s Banquet Specialists, 8360 Seneca Turnpike, New Hartford. The evening will include social time, raffle baskets, an ugly holiday sweater contest, dinner and the main event— a team trivia challenge.

The event is open to the public and individuals can be matched with a team or simply come and enjoy an entertaining night filled with friendly competition and holiday cheer.

The cost to attend is $25 per person.
