Oklahoma FFA Announces District Stars in Four Areas- All To Be Honored at 2016 Oklahoma FFA Convention

Twenty Oklahoma FFA members have made it to the finals in four different categories, all in their quest to be named a State of Oklahoma Star in that category. The twenty high school seniors have already faced the judges and will wait to see if their name is called this coming Wednesday afternoon on stage at the 2016 Oklahoma State FFA Convention. Four Stars will be named in Agriscience, Ag Placement, Agribusiness and Agricultural Production. The last of those, Agricultural Production, is the original Star award, otherwise known as the Star Farmer of Oklahoma. (Pictured here is the 2015 Oklahoma Star in Agribusiness- Megan Trantham of Boise City, who also was a National Profiency Award winner in the fall of 2015)

These awards recognizes high school seniors who have established a profitable agricultural program, demonstrated outstanding management skills and met other educational and leadership requirements. The five State Star Farmer finalists represent the best overall supervised agricultural experience programs of the 836 senior FFA members receiving the prestigious State FFA Degree, the highest degree the Oklahoma FFA Association can bestow upon its members.

Here are final twenty, who will be called to the stage, honored for their accomplishments as a District Star and then wait as the State Secretary will call the name of the Star in the four areas.
