Auburn Come Alive Outside Challenge

Sponsored by:

John Deere

On March 6th, the 2013 Come Alive Outside Challenge was launched at Auburn University as Alabama 4-H leaders and FFA students and their advisors from across Alabama gathered with Auburn Collegiate FFA members, Auburn horticulture students and leaders from John Deere, PLANET, JP Horizons and Leading Landscape Companies in a full-day workshop. Students, educators and industry leaders learned about the vision of the Come Alive Outside movement and then brainstormed together on the best ways for Alabama youth to implement Come Alive Outside projects within their communities. Energy was high and the interaction was inspiring as this group shared their vision for all of Alabama to Come Alive Outside.

4-H and FFA chapters will be planning and executing their projects between now and September 20. The group that meets all of the contest criteria and gets the most votes on this website will receive a $1,500.00 award from John Deere. The Auburn University student who has served as their mentor will also receive a $1,000.00 scholarship from John Deere.
