Braymer receives Top Chapter Award
SEDALIA, Mo., April 30, 2021 – The Missouri FFA Association awarded Braymer FFA Chapter a Gold Emblem, a Top Chapter Award. Braymer was also recognized as the premier chapter in building communities and placed 6th out of 351 chapters. Only 10 percent of state chapters receive a top chapter designation each year. The Braymer FFA advisor is Paige Brock. The top chapters compete for the National FFA Chapter Award. Winners will be announced this fall at the 94th National FFA Convention & Expo in Indianapolis. This award is sponsored by FCS Financial.
The National Chapter Award Program is designed to recognize FFA chapters that actively implement the mission and strategies of the organization. These chapters improve chapter operations using the National Quality Chapter Standards and a Program of Activities that emphasize growing leaders, building communities and strengthening agriculture. Chapters are rewarded for providing educational experiences for the entire membership.
The Braymer FFA building communities activities included a Teal Pumpkin Project, Caring for Healthcare, and a town scavenger hunt. The Teal Pumpkin Project provided the community with non-food items for trick-or-treaters with food allergies. FFA members were able to share information on food allergies and create alternatives to candy like pencils, stickers, rings and sunglasses. Caring for Healthcare was a week-long mission where students created gifts each day of the week to give frontline hospital employees. A town scavenger hunt provided the opportunity for members to visit local businesses and learn how they can support them.
The top chapters compete for the National FFA Chapter Award. Winners will be announced this fall at the 94th National FFA Convention & Expo in Indianapolis.
The Missouri FFA has 25,662 members representing 351 chapters. The national organization has more than 760,000 members representing 8,739 chapters in all 50 states and Puerto Rico.
The FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
