On Wednesday, April 6-8th the Maywood FFA Chapter made the long trek down to Lincoln, Nebraska for the 88th Annual State FFA Convention at the Pinnacle Bank Arena. Though the grass was wet with dew, and dark skies threatened foul weather, this setting didn’t dampen the mood of the FFA members. They were excited and anxious to get to their destination. A chance to compete at the State Convention is what the FFA kids have been striving for this whole year.

Here are the results from State FFA Convention:

Sr Livestock Judging - Red Ribbon, 15th out of 48 teams

Bryar Gerlach-red ribbon

In addition, the Ag Demonstration team of Marisa, Bailey, & Tucker earned a bronze emblem recognition.

Overall, our teams did very well!  There are currently 170 FFA Chapters in the state, so for our kids to be ribbon in all of their events is something to really be proud of! For all the competitions that take place at the State Convention, the participants that place in the top 50% all receive a ribbon. The top 10% of participants receive a purple ribbon, and the next 15% of participants receive a blue. The participants that placed in the 25% to 40% range, receive a red ribbon, and participants that placed between the 40%-50% range receive a white ribbon. Each contest had at least 36 teams and over 144 individuals participated in each contest.
