LOUISVILLE-The National FFA Organization recently selected eight S.D. FFA chapters to be recognized in the National FFA Chapter Award Program:

· Arlington: 3 stars

· Garretson: 3 stars

· Lake Preston: 3 stars

· Lennox-Sundstrom: 3 stars

· McCook Central: 3 stars

The chapter members have been invited to attend the 86th National FFA Convention in Louisville, KY, October 30 – November 2, 2013 where they will be recognized for this honor.

The National FFA Chapter Award program recognizes FFA chapters for developing and conducting a detailed Program of Activities (POA). Each activity provides opportunities for members to excel in one of three areas: student, chapter, or community development. Every year, chapters are recognized as having earned a one-, two- or three-star rating on their application. The three-star rating is the highest level of accomplishment a chapter may achieve.
