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

Mon, 18 Oct 2010 3:26:31 CDT

Oklahoma FFA to Have Lots of Members in the Chase for National Honors This Week in Indianapolis The 2010 National FFA Convention is rapidly approaching- set for this week, October 20-23 in Indianapolis, Indiana. The picture here is of one of the many Oklahoma FFA members hopeful to win a national title later this week- this is Taylor Runyan of Atoka FFA, a National Finalist in the Proficiency Contest for Emerging Agricultural Technology.

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.

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.
