LOCAL CHAPTER RECOGNIZED: The Goldendale FFA chapter has been nationally recognized.

The Goldendale FFA chapter has been recognized in 2019 National Chapter Award Program from the National FFA Organization.

The program recognizes outstanding FFA chapters from throughout the country that actively implement the mission and strategies of the organization. These chapters improve chapter operations using the National Quality FFA Chapter Standards and a Program of Activities that emphasizes growing leaders, building communities and strengthening agriculture. Chapters are rewarded for providing educational experiences for the entire membership.

The Goldendale FFA was recognized for their development and implementation of the following quality events: Teen Vaping Prevention, Women in Trades, Academic Reward Systems, Goldendale Night Out, Teddy Bear Toss, Sponsors Banner, Swag Shirts, Klickitat County Cookbook, and Youth Fire Prevention.


Chapters that received star ratings during judging in late July and will be recognized at the 2019 National FFA Convention & Expo, Oct. 30 – Nov. 2 in Indianapolis.

All star-rated FFA chapters receive honors made possible by corporate sponsor John Deere.

"Feeding some 9 billion people by mid-century brings with it unprecedented challenges for today's farmers," said Amy Allen, manager, national corporate contributions for John Deere. "The skills and experiences learned though the National Chapter Award Program will help meet the critical needs."

The National FFA Organization provides leadership, personal growth and career success training through agricultural education to 669,989 student members who belong to one of 8,630 local FFA chapters throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The organization is also supported by 459,514 alumni members in 2,236 alumni chapters throughout the U.S.
