Oklahoma Garners More Three Star Chapter Ratings Than Any Other State- 33 Oklahoma Chapters to Be Honored Thursday Afternoon

On Thursday, the National FFA will honor the top FFA Chapters in America- and that will include 33 Oklahoma FFA Chapters receiving the three star Award- the highest rating Chapters receive from National FFA. Chapters that receive a gold rating by their state FFA associations are eligible to compete for National FFA 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 Premier Chapter Awards, Models of Excellence and Middle School Models of Excellence Awards.

Oklahoma has the most three star chapters of any state in the US- after Oklahoma's 33 comes Ohio with 31, Missouri with 30 and Illinois with 29.

In addition, three Oklahoma Chapters are in consideration for the National Model of Excellence Overall Award here in 2019- Edmond, Elgin and Stillwater FFA Chapters. Ten high school chapters will be chosen as Model of Excellence chapters. These National FFA Model of Excellence chapters exhibit exemplary qualities in all categories of growing leaders, building communities and strengthening agriculture. An overall national winner will be chosen out of the Model of Excellence chapters. Only 3-star high school chapters are eligible for the Model of Excellence awards.

Two Oklahoma Chapters are in consideration in the Premier Chapter Awards- Jenks FFA is one of ten chapters nationally in the Growing Leaders Category, while the Edmond FFA Chapter is a top ten chapter in Strengthening Agriculture. The third category in the Premier Chapter Awards area is in Building Communities. Of those top ten in each division, a top premier chapter will be chosen in each division.
Only 3-star chapters are eligible for premier chapter awards.

Thirty seven Oklahoma FFA Chapters qualified as Gold Emblem Chapters at the state level and received national ratings- thirty three of them- the most ever for Oklahoma- are getting the top three star rating.
