Silent Auction Information

We will be holding a silent auction to support the NEGFA Education Foundation which supports grain safety education in Nebraska. Our first education event will be with Nebraska’s FFA students during State FFA Convention in April 2020.

Nebraska has nearly 9,000 FFA members in 184 chapters throughout the state. Through innovative curriculum and real-world opportunities, the FFA helps students develop leadership skills, enhances their knowledge of the ag industry, and positions them for career success.

This year, we’re hoping to raise $10,000 to support the Education Foundation. For our auctions, we rely on donated items to help us keep our costs low. That way, more money can go to providing needed grain safety education.
