The Versailles FFA Chapter was named the winner of the Model of Excellence award at the 2022 National FFA Convention.
Versailles FFA promoted farm safety in their community by hosting a Family Farm Safety Night event. To promote economic development, the chapter organized a Fall Harvest Market where FFA members could sell products like pumpkins, soap, and honey produced through their supervised agricultural experiences. Members also recognized local farmers by putting on an“Egg-spression of Appreciation” breakfast, serving 600 omelets to the community.
