As we make plans for the upcoming FFA
AREA AWARDS BANQUET -- please see the attached list of award winners that
will be recognized at this years event. In addition, the area officer election
results will be announced during this event. As a reminder, the registration
is due by April 30th.
It is very impressive to see all the
different chapters listed and see how many students will be getting awards
from participation in area events. I have not took the time yet, but would
find it very interesting to see which FFA Chapter will be going home with
the most FFA awards from the 2008-2009 school year.
Because this is an extensive list, there
is a possibility that mistakes have occurred; please take the time to go
over this information and let us know if there are any corrections. Also,
please make your students aware that they will be receiving these awards
The "certificate package"
that will be presented to each chapter advisor during the award ceremony
should also prove to be very interesting. Each package will have the total
count of Gold, Silver, and Bronze emblems that your students received during
the year. A good way to begin next year is to set goals for your chapter
to achieve more Gold Certificates (students finishing in the top 1/3) in
Area Events during the next school year.
Your Area Teachers and North Region
Staff has worked very hard to provide these opportunities for students
in addition to making sure awards are presented at the area banquet. Please
make plans to attend. Last year we had 70% of our chapters in attendance;
I am sure we can do better than that this year.
As always, THANK -YOU for making a positive
difference in the lives of your students by providing quality participation
in the FFA.
