Two Southern Door High School students have received a $1000 Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) Wisconsin FFA Foundation Grant. Zach and Anna Olson, who are siblings, completed a five-page application explaining their ideas, how much funding they needed, how they expected to use the funds and their future goals with their SAE project as well as their service efforts in both FFA and other school activities. Zach, a junior, has won the grant twice and plans to use the funds to expand the herd he started with his first grant.
Anna is a freshman and plans to purchase her own calf to breed, with the goal of having four dairy cattle by graduation.
The two plan to continue their education into college. SAE grants are given out in multiple categories, with the Olson siblings receiving the award in the “Dairy” category.
