FFA members from around the country found out this week that they will be recognized at the 90th National FFA Convention & Expo in October.
After a series of strenuous evaluations, the national finalists for National Chapter Awards, National FFA Agriscience Fair and National Agricultural Proficiency Awards have been announced!
The National FFA Agricultural Proficiency Awards honor FFA members who, through their supervised agricultural experiences (SAEs), have developed specialized skills that they can apply toward their future careers.
Members who received the National Finalist rating are eligible to compete at the 90th National FFA Convention & Expo. All other ratings are recognized by the state associations.
The National Chapter Award Program is designed to recognize FFA chapters that actively implement the mission and strategies of the organization. These chapters improve chapter operations using the National Quality Chapter Standards (NQCS) and a Program of Activities (POA) that emphasize growing leaders, building communities and strengthening agriculture. Chapters are rewarded for providing educational experiences for the entire membership.
The National FFA Agriscience Fair recognizes student researchers studying the application of agricultural scientific principles and emerging technologies in agricultural enterprises. The agriscience fair is for middle and high school students. Participation begins at the local level and progresses to state and national levels.
