On January 27, Jim Paluch presented a unique opportunity to the high school agriculture educators for the state of Kansas. These leaders of the FFA chapters in Kansas heard about the Come Alive Outside Challenge created by JP Horizons and sponsored by John Deere where Kansas FFA chapters and their assigned Kansas State Mentors will plan and execute a Come Alive Outside Community Event this spring.
Participating FFA chapters will meet on March 21st at Kansas State for an all-day workshop engaging the experience, expertise and support of JP Horizons, John Deere and Green Industry leaders to present and fine tune their plans for a Come Alive Outside Community Event. There will be a prize awarded to one of the FFA Chapters and their K-State mentor, and everyone will benefit from the opportunity to develop leadership experience and create an awareness to Come Alive Outside throughout the state. If you are an agriculture educator who missed being at the event, below are some links to documents that will prepare you to be a part of the challenge:
