Three Star Chapters Named by National FFA for 2014- 28 From Oklahoma

Twenty eight Oklahoma FFA Chapters have achieved the highest level of excellence that is rated by the National FFA organization and will be honored at the 2014 National FFA Convention in Louisville this October. Based on the total number of FFA chapters in the state, Oklahoma was eligible to submit 36 Chapters for a national star rating here in 2014. Twenty eight have been declared Three Star Chapters, while 8 have received Two Stars in 2014.

The National Chapter Award program recognizes FFA chapters that successfully complete an annual Program of Activities (PoA) which includes a series of activities designed to encourage its members to grow as individuals, to work as part of a team, and to serve others. Chapters that receive a gold rating by their state FFA associations are eligible to compete for National FFA their 3-star, 2-star or 1-star ratings. Each chapter that competes for these awards will receive a multi-year plaque and a spur designating their 3-star, 2-star or 1-star rating. They will receive additional spurs for each year they compete and receive a rating from the National FFA Organization. Chapters that receive a national 3-star chapter rating will be eligible to compete for the National Model of Innovation, Model of Excellence and Outstanding Middle School Chapter Awards.

Oilton FFA is a finalist for the National Model of Excellence Award. They are one of ten chapters nationally that are competing for what some consider to be the National Chapter of the year award. Oilton FFA is also a finalist in the Student category of the National Model of Innovation contest.

Nationally, Oklahoma has the third most chapters with a Three Star rating that will be honored in Louisville. Missouri holds top bragging rights in 2014 with 34 Three Star chapters, while Ohio has 30 chapters with a three star rating. The previous two years has seen Oklahoma top the nation in the total number of Three Star Chapters.

Oklahoma is unique in that a Chapter who earns the right to compete at the National level in any year must then sit out a year before having the chance to compete for a National Chapter award again.

The following thirty six Oklahoma FFA chapters are the ones that will represent Oklahoma this year in Louisville, with the number of Stars they have earned at the National level here in 2014:
