LG Seeds will be donating $1,000 to an FFA Chapter or 4-H Club on behalf of a grand prize winner to be selected at the 59th annual Farm Progress Show in Boone, Iowa, next week.
LG Seeds will be at Lot 702 at the Farm Progress Show this year. People who visit LG Seeds' tent will be offered a scratch and win ticket to see if they are an instant winner for a prize offered in the tent. Whether or not the person is an instant winner or not, he or she can fill out the back card and will be entered into a drawing to win the $1,000 grand prize to be donated to his/her local FFA or 4-H Club. The winner will be contacted after the show.
LG Seeds Brand Supply Manager and Illinois 4-H Foundation Board Member, Eric Yoder, is very excited that LG Seeds is giving back to the community, particularly ag-related organizations. Yoder says, "FFA and 4-H are both strong groups that provide learning and leadership opportunities to students across the country. LG Seeds feels it is very important to give back to the community and to such great organizations."
LG Seeds Marketing Specialist, Kristy Johns, is also very pleased with LG's focus to help a local area FFA or 4-H Club. Johns says, "FFA and 4-H are not your average youth organizations. It's a great fit to give back to those organizations because LG Seeds is also not your average seed company. We truly value our farming community and are thrilled to give back to an ag-related cause."
The Farm Progress Show will be taking place August 28-30 next week in Boone, IA. LG Seeds, based in Elmwood, Illinois, is a producer and marketer of seed corn, soybean and alfalfa seed, operating throughout the US Cornbelt.
