2022 Illinois FFA Service Project - Planting Trees

Join Illinois FFA and Country Financial in planting trees across the state. Country Financial is the sponsor for this service project and are the ones providing the money for reimbursement.  Take the opportunity to give back to your community and beautify a park, school, church, etc. Have fun and get creative! Invite your local Country Financial Representative to join your chapter when planting your trees.  We are immensely thankful for their generosity. 

The first 20 FFA chapters to fill out a reimbursement request form have the opportunity to receive up to $50/tree up to $250. Half will be paid up front and the other half will be paid after the submission of tree receipts and photos/videos of the tree planting project. Be sure to take pictures and/or videos planting the trees with your chapter to be highlighted at the Illinois FFA State Convention. 

Trees should be planted the week of April 24th and no later than April 29th (Arbor day) 

Please take pictures and/or videos planting your trees and email to

*Note - These pictures will be used in social media posts and at State Convention* 

For questions or more information contact at:

Again, this is a reimbursement request. Chapters will only be reimbursed up to what is paid for the trees.

Reimbursement request form due: April 15, 2022
