Northwestern FFA News

February 09, 2021



    Northwestern R-I FFA and students have been working really hard during these times. As of right now we have 4 students who are currently applying for their Missouri State FFA Degrees. Those students are Andrew Buck, Anna Speichinger, Hayden Harms, and Ayden Spencer. Andrew and Anna have a good shot of getting their state degree this year, but we won’t know for sure if they will receive their state degree until a later date.  Hayden and Ayden’s scores are pretty close to the cut off score so if they don’t get it this year, they can always apply again next year for their state degree. Hayden and Ayden are also applying for proficiency awards. Hayden is applying for swine entrepreneurship, and Ayden is applying for beef entrepreneurship. Both beef and swine entrepreneurship proficiency awards are tough awards to obtain because Hayden and Ayden will be competing against other students in the area and even maybe across the state. Wish all these kids good luck.

    There are several events that Northwestern FFA has coming up for the community and other surrounding areas. We will have our annual community breakfast and fish fry, but we will be doing things a little differently due to COVID. The Northwestern FFA Breakfast will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 24, 2021 from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m.  We will not have indoor dining like what we have done in years past. Instead we will have a take-out system, which will allow community members to come and still show support to the Northwestern R-I FFA chapter. Community members will be able to place their own order from the Northwestern Ag shop door or students can come and take orders from the comfort of your own vehicle. The Northwestern Fish Fry will be held on March 15 from 4 p.m. to about 7 p.m. The fish fry will be set up similar to the FFA breakfast, where people can come and place orders near the Ag shop doors or students can take orders from the vehicles. Both of these events will be open to the public and it will also be free will donations. Northwestern FFA knows that times are tough, but that is why we are not setting prices this year due to the ongoing pandemic. We encourage you to come out to these events to show how hard these kids have been working through these difficult times.
