5 FFA chapters recognized at #TransformFFA

Published:

Hats off to these five outstanding chapters, that clearly #TransformFFA. The National FFA Organization named its top chapters today during the 89th National FFA Organization & Expo:

Outstanding Middle School: Madison County Middle FFA of Georgia
Model of Excellence: Yelm FFA of Washington
Student Development: Bullard FFA of Texas
Chapter Development: Omak FFA of Washington
Community Development: Exeter FFA of California

The National Chapter program recognizes outstanding FFA chapters throughout the country that successfully complete an annual set of required activities that encourage members to grow as individuals, work as a team, and serve others in their communities.

Chapters that received three-star ratings during the summer judging competition were eligible to compete for the Model of Innovation award. Thirty FFA chapters competed in a presentation and interview process for the top honors.

All winning FFA chapters receive honors made possible by corporate sponsor John Deere as a special project of the National FFA Foundation.

The National FFA Organization provides leadership, personal growth, and career success training through agricultural education to 649,355 student members who belong to one of 7,859 local FFA chapters throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
