FFA Members, Teams Receive Recognition in Agriscience Fair

(August, 8, 2018/National FFA Organization) – More than 20 agricultural teachers, state leaders and college professors from throughout the U.S. recently met in Indianapolis to judge state Agriscience Fair winners on a national level.

Five students from the Smackover FFA chapter in Smackover, AR, have received bronze awards in the national agriscience fair competition.

Division one:

  • Rikki Holloway – Animal Systems

Division two:

  • Sawyer Cropper and Will Wilcox – Plant Systems
  • Sydney Zeek and Alex Demorrow – Food Products and Processing Systems

First-place winners in each state have qualified for the national pre-qualifying judging. The panel of judges reviewed entries and selected a maximum of 12 in each category and division to move on to the national competition.

The National FFA Agriscience Fair is a key competition that is part of the annual national convention and expo. To qualify, members working as individuals or teams in grades seven through 12 are required to conduct a scientific research project pertaining to the agriculture or food science industries and win their state’s FFA agriscience fair.

Individuals or teams compete in one of six categories – animal systems; environmental services/natural resources systems; food products and processing systems; plant systems; power, structural and technical systems; or social science – in six divisions – individuals in grades 7-8, teams grad 7-8, individuals grades 9,10 and teams grades 9-10, individuals in grades 11-12 and teams grades 11-12.
