Local FFA chapters achieve national ranking

The National FFA Organization recently selected eight SD FFA chapters to be recognized in the National FFA Chapter Award Program:

Chapter Stars

Arlington 3

Garretson 3

McCook Central 3

Lake Preston 2

Howard 2

Lennox-Sundstrom 2

Viborg 2

Bowdle 1

The chapter members have been invited to attend the 85th National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, IN, Oct. 24-27, 2012, where they will be recognized for this honor.

The award program is sponsored by the National FFA Foundation. The National FFA Chapter Award program recognizes FFA chapters for developing and conducting a detailed Program of Activities (POA). Each activity provides opportunities for members to excel in one of three areas: student, chapter, or community development. Every year, chapters are recognized as having earned a one-, two- or three-star rating on their application. The three-star rating is the highest level of accomplishment a chapter may achieve.

FFA is a national youth organization of 540,379 student members preparing for leadership careers in the science, business and technology of agriculture with 7,489 local chapters in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. FFA strives to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
