How do we do this better?

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?
