Laverne FFA Member Jake Fanning Named Finalist for 2017 National Star Farmer


Today, the National FFA Organization selected 16 students from throughout the United States as finalists for its 2017 top achievement awards: American Star Farmer, American Star in Agribusiness, American Star in Agricultural Placement and American Star in Agriscience.


Of the finalists named, Jake Fanning of the Laverne FFA Chapter in Oklahoma, made the list in the American Star Farmer category. He is one of 16 Regional Star Finalists that will compete for American Star Honors this October in Indianapolis.


The American Star Awards represents the best of the best among thousands of American FFA Degree recipients. The award recognizes FFA members who have developed outstanding agricultural skills and competencies through the completion of a supervised agricultural experience (SAE) program. A required activity in FFA, an SAE allows members to learn by doing. Members can own and operate an agricultural business, intern at an agricultural business or conduct an agriculture-based scientific experiment and report the results.


Other requirements to achieve the award include demonstrating top management skills; completing key agricultural education, scholastic and leadership requirements; and earning an American FFA Degree, the organization’s highest level of student accomplishment.


A panel of judges will interview finalists and select one winner for each award at the 90th National FFA Convention & Expo, Oct. 25-28 in Indianapolis. The four winners will be announced during an onstage ceremony on Thursday, Oct. 26.


ADM Crop Risk Services, Case IH, Elanco and Syngenta sponsor the American FFA Degree recognition program.
