Brusveen Wins Middle School Essay Contest

June 16, 2022 Other Awards

Briella Brusveen of the Randolph Cambria-Friesland FFA Chapter is the state winner of the Middle School “The Time is Now” Essay Contest for the 93rd State FFA Celebration. Briella’s advisors are Stephanie Devries and Lauren Frances

In Briella’s essay she passionately states that “The final line of the FFA Creed reflects on how each individual is responsible for more than just themselves. “I believe that American agriculture can and will hold true to the best traditions of our national life and that I can exert an influence in my home and community which will stand solid for my part in the inspiring task.” The time is now to be a supporter and innovator of agriculture. I am the future of agriculture and it is my job to communicate and advocate agriculture’s past struggles, present ideas, and future benefits to my community, my state, and my world”.

The Middle School Essay objective is to promote proficiency in writing and communication skills for FFA members eighth grade and under. These students submit an entry to the essay contest from a local level, after which, five are chosen to be submitted to the state level from each chapter. The essays are then judged and the top four finalists, as well as section winners, will be presented with a plaque. Participants in this essay contest gain a deeper understanding of the FFA organization and its attributes through a designated theme, with this year’s theme being “The Time is Now.”  This theme is decided upon by the Wisconsin 2021-2022 State officer team.
