Liz Bunkers, ACE, and Pam Miller, Siouxland Ethanol, teach kids about ethanol

American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) staff and member plant, Siouxland Ethanol LLC, joined the Northeast Nebraska Corn Growers (NNCGA) last week participating in an ag youth literacy festival in Jackson, Nebraska.

ACE staffers Liz Bunkers and Chuck Beck, along with Pam Miller of Siouxland Ethanol, showed students products of the ethanol production process and discussed how it works, in addition to educating them on future career opportunities and the variety of ways to get involved in the renewable fuels industry.

NNCGA, in partnership with the Nebraska Farm Bureau Foundation, organized the first Growing Potential Ag Festival for about 300 middle school aged students in its member counties. Students rotated through nine stations, including corn products and processing, corn planting, corn harvest, renewable fuels and ethanol production, corn feed and livestock, GMO education, parts of the corn plant and pollination, crop protection, and agricultural UAV technology.
