Find Your Fit with Kansas Corn and Get Rewarded!

Kansas Corn Challenge

The Kansas Corn Growers Association is excited to introduce the Kansas Corn Challenge. We realize that our members all find a different place to fit in and support KCGA. We want to recognize and thank those that go above and beyond. Participating in the new Kansas Corn Challenge is easy. We will show you appreciation for participating, recruiting friends or taking action. No need to track your points; we’ll do that on our end. Once a month, if you’ve reached a new point level, you’ll receive some great Kansas Corn swag as our thanks for engaging with Kansas Corn. We are already tracking points and the first round of prizes will have been sent out. The point count will restart each calendar year, and we will recognize the top engaged participants from the previous year at the Corn Symposium.

Host a Corn Chat!

What is a Corn Chat, and how do I host one?
Purpose:
Create local gatherings to talk about issues or topic updates relevant to area farmers. No formal presentation, more conversational and local. Event would be held over coffee or drinks at the choice of the host.

Host: The chats are hosted by farmers or industry partners. They pick a date and location and work with to confirm the date. They then invite local farmers with the commitment to get at least 10 farmers to attend.

Kansas Corn: Our Corn Crew regional reps will be the initial point of contact for any interested local host. At least one Kansas Corn staff will attend depending on the topic. We will promote the chats in our newsletter and on our website, and pick up the cost of the drinks.

If you have questions about the Corn Chat, or would like to discuss hosting one, contact Stacy Mayo-Martinez, smartinez@ksgrains.com for more information!
