The Zane Trace FFA Chapter was recently given a Gold Rating and named one of the top 10 chapters in the state of Ohio through the National Chapter Award Program.
The National Chapter Award program recognizes FFA members and their chapters for the activities they plan and conduct throughout the year. Chapters submit an application outlining fifteen different activities they conduct that emphasize the areas of growing leaders, building communities and strengthening agriculture. The senior members of the chapter worked throughout the months of February and March to complete the application, which included detailed descriptions of activities such as the elementary Maple syrup lessons, the Sausage Breakfast, ZT courtyard construction, canning for a cause project, RCHS dog adoption day, Pioneer Pantry and more.
The honor of receiving a Gold Rating is reserved for the top 10% of all chapters in Ohio. Zane Trace has earned a Gold Rating every year since 2015. In addition to this recognition the chapter was selected to compete for the top chapter in the state in the area of Strengthening Agriculture thanks to the Sausage Breakfast and Maple syrup production programs offered to members.
Seniors Briana Fetters and Taylor Brown presented the chapter’s plan, implementation and impact for these activities to a panel of judges via zoom meeting on Thursday, April 1st. The chapter will learn the results of the selection committee during the Ohio FFA Convention on Friday, April 30th.

The Zane Trace FFA would like to thank the entire Zane Trace community for their support of the program throughout the years. Receiving a Gold Rating would not be possible without strong backing from supporters of our chapter.
