Congratulations to the following six Georgia FFA Chapters.  They each will receive a $1,000 grant from the National FFA Alumni.   Out of the 20 Alumni Affiliates that were awarded one of the 2005 Local Program Support Grants on the national level, six went to Georgia FFA Chapters, the most of any state in the nation.   These FFA chapters will receive a $1,000 grant for their project at the National FFA Alumni Convention in October.  You must have a local FFA Alumni affiliate before you can apply for a grant.  The 2006 grant applications are due in July.  If your FFA has an FFA Alumni affiliate, then please have someone to submit an application this spring.  It only takes a few minutes to fill out the application.   The six Georgia FFA Chapters receiving grants and their projects are listed below:
