Teachers,



Just a reminder, the proficiency award categories have been updated for
2009. Due to sponsorship some areas have expanded, contracted, been added or
deleted. Please review the list of sponsored proficiency award areas for
2009 that is listed below. Specifically, Veterinary Science has been added,
and the Aquaculture area has been deleted. Other changes involve combining
entrepreneurship and placement in existing areas. These areas are available
in the proficiency award application template on the national FFA website at
http://www.ffa.org/index.cfm?method=c_programs.Proficiency.



Please remember too that a brief survey has been added to the front of each
proficiency application. Please have your student complete the survey and
submit it with their application. We will collect all surveys and submit
them to national FFA. I know this will take a little more time, but the fact
is, in order to continue to secure necessary funding for our program on both
the state and national level, it is vital that we can provide data to
support student involvement. Thanks for doing your part to help provide that
information.
