The Fowler FFA Chapter sold 43 students at its annual Oyster Fry and Hired Hand Auction on Feb. 26, significantly beating last year's average bid, and brought in over $21,000, thanks to the Fowler community's generosity.

Students labored to make projects to sell at the auction and worked hard to serve a delicious dinner for their guests and the community.

Individuals and businesses of the Fowler community bought the students to help with daily projects and activities.

From cleaning homes to planting seeds in the field this spring, Fowler FFA members are eager to serve their buyers.

In addition to the labor auction, 43 handmade projects, built by the students in ag class this year, brought in nearly $7,000.

The Fowler FFA chapter auctions off five scholarship jackets every year.  The money earned from the jackets goes to seniors in agriculture who have applied for the chapter scholarship.  

These jackets brought in over $4,000 for Fowler seniors.

"We are very grateful for everyone who came to support us and for those who bought our projects and students," said Fowler FFA Chapter Reporter Shayna Ede. "We hope to see everyone next year."
