Happy National FFA Week!
Many of you have asked how you placed in Proficiencies. I’m leery to share exact results with you as they appear to be very fluid. What I mean by that is that we’ve had people place that we didn’t know about originally, people moved from 1st to 2nd, 3rd to 1st, etc. I don’t want you to be disappointed because I may have told you one thing and another gets announced on stage at Convention.
Digging into results a little deeper: We have 12 finalists! McCook Central had 50 some, Harrisburg tied with us at 12 – that makes our two chapters the ones who got the second most kids into the finals. We also won our fare share of first places – at least with the results that I have access to.
For today address the following on your blog:
- How can we do this better next year?
- How can I make proficiency award applications easier for you and less stressful for me?
- Do you think you would be able to apply in more than one area? Please list those areas in your answer.
- What help would you need to make that happen?
- What are some realistic goals for our members with regard to proficiency awards next year?
- How do we involve the other classes; Animal Science, Floriculture/Horticulture, Vet Science, and Biotechnology in proficiencies? What do the non-FFA kids do while I’m working with the FFA folks on proficiency apps?
- Tell me about your proficiency app experience – what did you learn?
- What would have made your application more competitive?
