Attached is the list of 2013 state FFA proficiency award finalists. These students have reached this point through much hard work in their Supervised Agricultural Experience program. Each state proficiency award finalist will be expected to interview with a panel of judges at the 85th Georgia FFA Convention in Macon. Interviews will take place from 11 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 25. Any finalist with an extenuating circumstance that may require them to miss their interview should contact the State FFA Office no later than April 1. Proficiencey state results will be announced on stage during the 3rd general session at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, April 26.


Please review the attached list carefully. I am aware that each Region office has already announced their Regional winners. All Region winners are considered state Finalists. However, some categories did not have equal participation in all three Regions, so some Regional runner-ups were named State Finalists. All students listed on the attached pages as State Finalists will have the opporutnity to interview and be named state winner. Please be sure to touch base with your region office to make sure that you return your State Finalist application(s) as soon as possible so that they can be forwarded on for state judging.


If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. More specific information (including an interview schedule) will be sent to advisors with proficiency finalists in the coming weeks. Congratulations to these students and their advisors for earning this level of success.
