Oklahoma FFA to Have Lots of Members in the Chase for National Honors This Fall in Indianapolis

Oklahoma FFA to Have Lots of Members in the Chase for National Honors This Fall in Indianapolis The 2010 National FFA Convention is rapidly approaching- set for October 2-23 in Indianapolis, Indiana. The picture here is of the 2010-2011 Oklahoma FFA Officer team announced back in April at the 2010 Oklahoma FFA Convention- these young people will lead the several hundred Oklahoma FFA members that will be in attendance this year at the national gathering.

In a couple of key areas, the Oklahoma FFA Association has bested every other state in the country. For example, in the area of the national proficiencies competition, Oklahoma has qualified 22 national finalists, compared to Wisconsin with 18 National Finalists and California and Illinois with each 16.

Click here for the list of Oklahoma Profiency Awards for 2010- including the 22 that are National Finalists.

Another test of the high quality depth of the Oklahoma FFA experience is in the number of three star chapters that will be honored at the National convention in Indianapolis. Among the elite states that have more than 20 chapters that meet the stringent qualifications to achieve three stars- Oklahoma is the leader with 25 chapters to be so recognized, while Iowa is second with 22 and Florida is third with 21.
