COLUMBIA, Mo., April 19, 2024 – The Savannah FFA Chapter received the Soy Innovation Challenge Scholarship at the 96th Missouri FFA Convention. The Savannah FFA advisors are Jessica Aeschliman, Jeff Baumann and Mikaila Livingston. The Missouri Soybean Merchandising Council hosted this challenge and sponsored the scholarship.

The Soy Innovation Challenge aims to engage FFA members in creating valuable exhibits and ideas based on the soy value chain to display at Missouri Soybeans’ Center for Soy Innovation in Jefferson City. 

The Soy Innovation Challenge is a two-part contest where chapters designed and developed an exhibit for the Center for Soy Innovation and submitted proposals for Missouri Soybean Merchandising Council to consider. The top four chapters traveled to the state’s capital to present to a panel of judges. The Savannah FFA Chapter received a $10,000 scholarship for their first place exhibit.

The Missouri FFA has 26,830 members representing 362 chapters. The national organization has more than 945,000 members representing 9,163 chapters in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
