FYI….I know that many of you will be in Perry the rest of this week. When you return, if you have students who applied for National FFA Scholarships, please remember to print signature pages and mail them no later than February 22! Applications are not considered FINAL until signature pages are received.


The scholarship system closed at 5:30 p.m. today. If a student has not submitted the online portion of the scholarship application, their application will not be reviewed. At this point, the only steps that can still be taken are 1) advisor review, 2) print signature page and 3) mail signature page.


Let me know if you have questions.

As you are aware the scholarship server went down today for approximately 10 minutes.  When this happened our calls went through the roof.  Approximately 10 minutes from the time the server went down until we had contacted our provider the system was back up and accepting applications.  Once the system went back up the calls and emails volume dropped to normal levels as expected for the day of a deadline.


Teachers still have access to the system to review and approve applications. Once an advisor approves the application, students  still have access to print signature pages.  Signature pages must be signed and post marked by February 22nd.  The system will allow for review, approval, and printing of signature pages until 11:59 p.m. on February 22.


If you have teachers contact you with concerns, please feel free to have them contact Jim Armbruster, 317-802-4334, [log in to unmask].
