June 29, 2012 | 3:06 pm

The results are in! Nutrients for Life Foundation is very excited to announce the winners of our Helping Communities Grow program.

FFA chapters in California, Florida, Iowa, Idaho, Ohio and Washington competed in Helping Communities Grow program during the 2011-2012 school year.

Students in participating FFA chapters developed and executed community-based education programs based on the Foundation’s curriculum, Nourishing the Planet in the 21st Century.  The program encouraged about 1710 FFA students to help the public become better informed about crop nutrients and related agricultural issues.  These students served as educators in their communities and shared their knowledge with more than 2,500 people.
