FFA Wiring Contest
Mitchell EMC has always played an integral part in educating our consumers about electricity in agricultural settings. The FFA Wiring Contest is an excellent opportunity for high-school Future Farmers of America members to learn valuable skills in the design and application of electrical wiring.
The EMC/FFA Electrification Contest, part of the Georgia Department of Education’s Agricultural Education division, is organized through local FFA chapters and sponsored by the Electric Membership Corporations of Georgia. Participating high school students can win scholarship funds to use at any college, university or vocational school in Georgia. The contest reinforces electrical wiring as taught in the vocational agriculture education program and expands the student’s grasp of electric energy and the role of the EMCs in Georgia’s energy future.
