The Anna FFA chapter of Anna, Ohio, has been recognized in the 2014 National Chapter Award Program from the National FFA Organization. The program recognizes outstanding FFA chapters from throughout the country that successfully complete an annual set of required activities that encourage members to grow as individuals, work as a team and serve others in their communities.
Chapters that received star ratings during judging July 27-Aug 1 will be recognized at the 2014 National FFA Convention & Expo, Oct. 29-Nov. 1 in Louisville, Ky. All-star FFA chapters receive honors made possible by corporate sponsor John Deere as a special project of the National FFA Foundation.
“Feeding some 9 billion people by mid-century brings with it unprecedented challenges for today’s farmers,” said Amy Allen, manager, national corporate contributions for John Deere. “The skills and experiences learned through the National Chapter Awards programs will help meet the critical needs.”
