Glencliff High School Student Qualifies for the National Agriscience Fair

IMG_6536 Brett Hatch, of the Glencliff FFA Chapter, has been named a finalist for the National Agriscience Fair through the National FFA Organization. Hatch will compete against 15 other finalists from across the country in the category of Food Product and Processing Systems Division I at the National FFA Convention in October in Louisville, Kentucky.

The National Agriscience Fair is a competition for FFA members who are interested in the science and technology of agriculture. Students are required to conduct a scientific research project and present their findings to a panel of judges with a display and report.

On top of the prestige of being a national finalist, the qualification is even more impressive in the fact that Hatch is only in the 10th grade. Hatch developed his concept, conducted his project, and won the State FFA Agriscience Fair as a freshman this past April. One national winner will be announced in each category at the National FFA Convention in October.
