Chapters: You Can Win $1,000 from Hamilton-Locke!
Hamilton-Locke announces a challenging new
educational contest for all registered FFA chapters. Be the first
chapter to correctly identify the nearly 1,000 photos of various
weeds, insects and crop diseases that are located on the contest
poster and win $1,000 for your FFA chapter and AgExplorer
merchandise for your chapter members!
This contest is designed to highlight how new
technologies like AgExplorer can be used to diagnose problems,
find solutions, and guide students on the Internet. Instructors
are excluded from the contest, but may assist by guiding students
to references. Participants are invited to use any reference
material available, including the AgExplorer CD, to identify as
many of the photos as possible. All of the photos on the poster
are taken from the AgExplorer CD-ROM.
Please follow the contest instructions
carefully. They can be found at www.agexplorer.com.
The FFA chapter submitting the answer sheet with the most correct
answers will receive the grand prize of $1,000 for their FFA
chapter, an AgExplorer 1-year site-license for their school, and
AgExplorer merchandise for each student in the chapter. The second
and third place chapters will receive a 1-year AgExplorer
site-license for their school and AgExplorer merchandise for each
chapter member. Fourth through tenth place chapters will win a
1-year site license for their school. In case of a tie, the entry
turned in first will receive priority. The
deadline for all entries is April 15, 2001.
If you have not received a poster from your
state program administrator, order a free one at www.agexplorer.com.

The National Farm and Ranch Business Management
Education Association (NFRBMEA) is an association of ag educators
located throughout the United States and Canada. Sharing ideas and
communicating has always been what NFRBMEA is about.
Early in NFRBMEA history, John Hest, a farm
management instructor from Hawley, Minnesota, took it upon himself
to start a newsletter that went out to members four times each
year. He christened the newsletter Nuts & Bolts to
suggest the practical aspects of farm and ranch business
management education. After seven years as editor, Hest passed the
communications torch to Wayne and Deb Pike, farm management
education professionals in LeRoy, Minnesota. Nuts & Bolts
is now published in hard copy format three times per year.
The NFRBMEA Board of Directors and members now
invite the world to take a look at Nuts & Bolts, and
much more, on our Web site at www.nfrbmea.org.
Here we tell about our annual conferences, past and future. We
list our corporate friends and provide links to memberís sites
as well as other sites of interest to ag education professionals.
A map of the continent associates members with their state or
province. Contact with our Board is encouraged through hypertext
The most recent addition to our site is a
bulletin board area. You are invited to drop in and join us as we
develop our international discussion of issues affecting
agriculture and education. Deb Pike created and maintains the
NFRBMEA site. She would appreciate hearing from you.
