Whites Creek FFA Chapter a Finalist for Top National Honor
During the 2013-2014 school year, the Whites Creek FFA Chapter traveled across the state educating the public about alternative energy and the impact it has on the agricultural industry. Today, the chapter has once again been recognized for this inventive advocacy parade. Today, the National FFA Organization named the Whites Creek FFA Chapter a national finalist in the Model of Innovation Award for chapter development. This award is only presented to 30 chapters in the United States and only ten chapters in three different categories: student, chapter, or community development.
A chapter must be a three-star chapter to be considered for the Model of Innovation award, in addition to doing something unique to influence the community. This award is sponsored nationally by John Deere and showcases innovative ideas and activities that a chapter participated in throughout the year. As a national finalist, the Whites Creek FFA Chapter members and their Program of Activities will be featured in a National FFA publication highlighting the top FFA chapters and what they provide to their members.
At the National FFA convention in October, the nation’s top chapter will be chosen after two students from each chapter present their chapter’s activities in front of a board of five judges.
