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.
