State Proficiency Award Winners Announced

Apr 4, 2019

Winners in the State Agricultural Proficiency Awards were selected Saturday, March 16th for presentation at the 91st Kansas FFA Convention in Manhattan.

The proficiency award program recognizes students for exceptional accomplishments and excellence in a Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) program. This program allows students to set goals and gain real-world experience in a chosen area of the agriculture industry.

Thank you to those teachers and volunteers who assisted in the evaluation process on Saturday! Your dedication to the process and providing feedback about the application and SAE was greatly appreciated. The group evaluated more than 110 applications.

Congratulations to all who applied!
