Thomas to compete at the 87th National FFA Convention

Andrea-ThomasThe National FFA Organization (FFA) announced national finalists in August. Andrea Thomas of the Colusa FFA was selected as a national finalist for National FFA Proficiency Award in Diversified Agricultural Production – Entrepreneurship/Placement. Thomas is one of four people chosen to compete for this award at the national finals held Oct.29-Nov.1, 2014 during the 87th National FFA Convention & Expo in Louisville, Ky.

The Proficiency awards recognize outstanding student achievement in agribusiness gained through establishment of a new business, working for an existing company or otherwise gaining hands-on career experience. The Diversified Agricultural Production – Entrepreneurship/Placement Award involves the use of best management practices available to produce and market a combination of livestock and crops in two or more proficiency areas and is one of 49 proficiency areas FFA members can participate in to develop valuable experience and leadership skills at the local, state and national levels.

Thomas, a member of the Colusa FFA Chapter, became eligible for the national award after winning the California State FFA competition earlier this year.

The award is sponsored by National FFA Foundation, Inc., as a special project of the National FFA Foundation. In recognition of being a finalist, each of the four finalists received a plaque and $500.

The national winner of the Diversified Agricultural Production – Entrepreneurship/Placement Award will receive an additional $500 during a special ceremony at the national FFA convention.

The National FFA Organization provides leadership, personal growth and career success training through agricultural education to 579,678 student members in grades 7-12 who belong to one of 7,570 local FFA chapters throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. ■
