Stillwater FFA earns Grand Champion Award at MN State Fair

Stillwater Area High School's FFA Chapter earned a Grand Champion Award and Blue Ribbon in the FFA Landscape Design and Construction Competition at the Minnesota State Fair.

Stillwater FFA members designed and constructed the display to meet the theme of Native Minnesota Gardens. Plant and hardscape materials for the project were donated by Abrahamson Nurseries and Rose Floral of Stillwater. The display earned its blue ribbon and Grand Champion status by best meeting the criteria in the following areas: principles of design, elements of design, landscape construction, selection and quality of plant specimens, correct and clear labeling and signs, and accessories and lighting.

The National FFA Organization, formerly known as Future Farmers of America, is a youth organization of 649,355 student members as part of 7,859 chapters in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The local FFA advisor is Mr. Glenn Boettcher, Agriscience teacher at Stillwater Area High School. The FFA mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education.
