Edmond FFA of Oklahoma has been named the 2019 National Premier Chapter: Strengthening Agriculture winner at the 92nd National FFA Convention & Expo in Indianapolis.
The National Chapter Award program recognizes outstanding FFA chapters that actively implement the mission and strategies of the organization. These chapters improve chapter operations using the National Quality FFA Chapter Standards and a Program of Activities that emphasizes growing leaders, building communities, and strengthening agriculture. Chapters are rewarded for providing educational experiences for the entire membership.
Edmond FFA recognized the growing popularity of podcasts and wanted to use the medium to share information about various agricultural topics. They then created "Ag in the Airwaves." Members learned skills such as script composition and editing and produced four podcasts that were featured on the chapter's website and social media pages. The podcasts had more than 412 reactions, and all 19 members in the agricultural communications class participated.
Chapters eligible to compete for the National Premier Chapter: Strengthening Agriculture award demonstrate competency in doing innovative things or taking traditional concepts and applying a creative twist in the building communities division of the chapter's Program of Activities. Ten three-star chapters competed in a presentation and interview process for the top honor during this year's national convention. Edmond FFA received a plaque in an onstage ceremony during the convention's second general session on Thursday, Oct. 31.
