Willie’s Farm Family Program at K-State Football’s Celebrate Agriculture Day

Submitted by Athletics Director Gene Taylor

K-State Research & Extension Agents and Specialists,

We are excited to announce that K-State Athletics will host our first Celebrate Agriculture Day with K- State Football this fall. While our plans have been in the works for quite some time, the past couple of months have highlighted what we at Kansas State University have always known – the importance of the agriculture industry not only for our state and country, but also the world at large. Our history as Kansas State Agriculture College is something we recognize and celebrate.

Our designated Celebrate Agriculture game is November 7 against Texas Tech, and we are excited to honor one Willie’s Farm Family from each county!

Selecting the family who will represent your county will most likely be a difficult task! Below are just two ideas to consider. We support and trust whatever type of process you think works best for you and your county.

• Ask families to sign up if they are interested in attending and do a random drawing.

• Ask others in the community to nominate a deserving family. You or a committee could then choose the recipient from those nominations.

Once you have determined who to select, please visit k-st.at/FB20-AG to submit your Farm Family. The deadline for submissions is Tuesday, June 30.

The selected farm family from each county will receive two complimentary tickets to the game with the opportunity to purchase additional discounted tickets and be recognized with all county representatives during the game. The nominated family will receive more information on this program in a follow-up email in July.

We appreciate all that you do to advance agriculture throughout the state of Kansas. As a thank you, we will provide you with a promo code for discounted tickets to the game that you can share with others around your community. Single-game tickets go on sale in July, and you will receive ticket information in a follow up email towards the end of June.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to Luke Jackson at lajackson@kstatesports.com or 785-532-6945.

Go Cats!
