Shasta County Farm Bureau wins another Innovator Award

The Shasta County Farm Bureau has won another statewide Innovator Award, it was announced during the California Farm Bureau Federation's 98th Annual Meeting this week.

From the CFBF's news release:
The Innovator Award, which recognizes a creative, forward-thinking project or program, was presented to the Shasta County Farm Bureau. Seeking a “fresh, original and creative approach” to recruit members, it sponsored a video contest for local high school FFA chapters, challenging them to create videos about why someone should become a Farm Bureau member. The county Farm Bureau awarded a cash prize to the winning chapter, which helped it expand operations on its school farm and send students to FFA contests and conferences.
As we reported, Shasta County previously won the Innovator Award in 2014, when it put on an agriculture-related summer camp, and 2011, when it started a ranch rodeo to raise money.
