         LOCAL FFA CHAPTER WINS P.R.I.D.E. AWARD
      MADISON, WIS., June 16, 2010 – One of the main goals of the Membership Committee has
      been to create innovative ideas to increase membership. The P.R.I.D.E. Award was designed to
      increase chapter membership participation by encouraging chapters to continually recruit and
      retain members in hopes that every chapter would increase by 10 members each year. P.R.I.D.E.
      stands for Promote, Recruit, Inspire, Develop, and Educate. The Country Today sponsors this
      award as a special project of the Wisconsin FFA Foundation, Inc.
