The Indiana FFA Association announced the proficiency winners at the 85th Annual Indiana FFA State Convention held June 16-19 at Purdue University.

The Agricultural Proficiency Awards honor FFA members who, through their SAEs (Supervised Agricultural Experience), have developed specialized skills that they can apply toward their future careers.

Students can compete for awards in 49 areas covering everything from Agricultural Communications to Wildlife Management. Each award area has two categories, placement and entrepreneurship.

Placement proficiency awards are given to those whose SAEs are related to employment, apprenticeships, or internships at an agribusiness or agriculture related organization.

Heather Goss of the Cloverdale FFA Chapter won the State Star in Placement. She was recognized for her work at the Cloverdale FFA Greenhouse, Rolling Meadows Plant Farm, and Goss Family Farms. Heather’s work was considered outstanding among hundreds of placement SAE’s throughout the state of Indiana.

The Indiana FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of over 10,000 students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education. Through participation in this Career Development Event FFA members are developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success.
