Oklahoma FFA Steps Up and Challenges the Big Dawgs in Agriscience at 2016 National ConventionWed, 26 Oct 2016 05:30:16 CDT
As we sort through the results of the 2016 National FFA Convention- we are starting to see Oklahoma challenge the established top tier of states that consistently have national winners in several of the six categories.
There are a total of 24 national winners- based on the 6 categories and a junior and senior individual and team winners.
Twelve of the winners are individuals and 12 are teams. A year ago- Oklahoma had one national team winner at the Agriscience Fair held in the Career Show area of the National Convention. This year- Oklahoma has a total of three national team winners- the same number as Texas and only bested by Georgia with four national team winners. That means these three states have 10 of the 12 national winners.
Oklahoma's national teams included William Clune and Bryant Hague of Edmond winning the Junior Division in Animal Systems, while Jentry Squires and Harrison Themer of Kingfisher won the Junior Division in the Plant Systems contest.
In the Senior Division- we have one national winner- Shae Grooms and Lauren Lacy of Edmond brought home a national title in the Social Systems category. (they are pictured above- Lauren on the left and Shae on the right)
