Florida FFA recently announced the selection of “Florida’s Finest” FFA Chapters, and Mount Dora High made the list!

The selection of the chapters is based on the completion of the National Chapter Award program application. 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 a Program of Activities that emphasizes growing leaders, building communities and strengthening agriculture. Chapters are rewarded for providing educational experiences for the entire membership. These chapters will be recognized during 96th Florida FFA State Convention & Expo to be held at the Caribe Royale Resort in Orlando this summer.

The annual state FFA convention and expo is the highlight of Florida FFA’s year. Nearly 5,000 FFA members, advisors, administrators, alumni, parents and industry partners come together to celebrate the achievements won by the past and present generations of agriculturalists, while continuing to develop their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success.

The Florida FFA Association is a premier youth, leadership organization with over 50,000 middle and high school student members – as part of over 350 local FFA chapters across the state. FFA members participate in nearly 50 leadership and career development events each year. 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.
