In the National FFA Organization’s summer application judging held in Indianapolis, Texans demonstrated continuing dominance in agriscience fair, vast improvement in proficiency participation and a need for improvement in the National Chapter Contest.

In the second year of preliminary agriscience fair judging, 20 of the state’s 22 entries are advancing to the national convention. The National FFA Organization began pre-judging agriscience fair applications in 2012. Only the top 15 applicants in each division advance to the National FFA Convention.

Texas agriscience fair participants have a long, storied history in this event and often rack up the lion’s share of winners and top-three finishers.

Texas proficiency applicants turned in a solid performance with 13 national finalists and 29 of 43 (67%) of the applicants rated as gold.

Rusk FFA was the only chapter that managed to garner a three-star rating in the three-tier system. Eighteen applications (21%) were rated as two-star.
