American Egg Board Partners with FFA to Reach Educators & Students

Park Ridge, IL (October 13, 2016)  — For more than 40 years, the American Egg Board (AEB) has fostered a legacy of educating Americans about the Incredible Edible Egg. Now, in partnership with the National FFA Organization, AEB is amplifying its reach to 629,367 student members who belong to one of 7,757 local FFA chapters throughout the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

“This partnership connects the AEB with today’s educators and tomorrow’s consumers. Our participation at the annual FFA Expo positions us to significantly expand our reach,” says Anne L. Alonzo, AEB’s President and CEO. “Not only will we exclusively connect with teachers in the Internet Café, as its sole sponsor, but we’ll also share our eggucational materials developed with the country’s leading educational experts.”

During the Expo, AEB will engage one-on-one with teachers and highlight AEB.org/Educators that houses materials including lesson plans that align with National Standards, Eggsperiments and Virtual Egg Farm Field Trips, showcasing five multi-generational family egg farms from across the country.

“FFA provides essential leadership training to our leaders of tomorrow, and we know these leaders and their peers want more information about where our food, like eggs, comes from and who is behind today’s farms,” says Alonzo. “Our latest Virtual Egg Farm Field Trip took place right before World Egg Day and reached those who may not know a lot about today’s egg farms. Our partnership with FFA will strengthen AEB’s efforts to showcase today’s egg farmers and their incredible farms.”
