23 SD FFA Agri-Scientists Advance to National Competition
The National FFA Agriscience Fair is a competition for FFA members interested in the science and technology of agriculture. Students compete in one of six categories: animal systems; environmental services/natural resources systems; food products and processing systems; plant systems; power, structural and technical systems; or social systems. There are Jr. High, 9-10th grade, and 11-12th grade divisions.
State FFA Agriscience Fair winners submit their written research papers to the national level and twelve projects in each division are selected to advance and present their project for competition during the National FFA Convention. National FFA just released the finalists to advance to National FFA Convention, and SD has 23 individual and team projects that will be competing in Indianapolis Oct. 29th – Nov. 2nd:
