 On May 8, 2013, Colusa FFA members attended the North Valley Section FFA Project Competition Banquet hosted by Butte College Agriculture and Environmental Science Department.

The results announced were from project visits that took place on April 2 when judges from Butte College came to Colusa.

Colusa FFA was one of the top two schools receiving 5 Gold Award recipients out of the 59 contestants from the 15 participating schools.

Awards were given on two levels Division I for Freshman and Sophomores, and Division II for Juniors and Seniors, and were scored on the overall scope and management of the projects, presentation of the projects and record keeping. Our members received the awards as follows: Brandon Woodring, Div. I Gold, Shayne Myers, Div. I Gold, Mackenzie Bressler, Div. II Gold, Kolby Steidlmayer, Div. I Gold, Andrea Thomas, Div. I Gold and Div. I Overall Winner, and Garrett Hamilton Div. I Silver.

Sponsors of the event were Butte College, and Glenn, Butte and Colusa County Farm Bureaus.
