CH-CH-CH-CH-CHANGES

(Turn and face the strain), Ch-ch-Changes…Time may change me, but I can't trace time…

I never thought I’d be quoting a David Bowie song in this format, but it seems fitting. Last spring, the National FFA Organization highlighted some of the changes that would be happening and now they’ve arrived. You’ve probably already been working to fill out various applications and navigated through them.

For teachers who’ve begged, pleaded and tried to bribe, the new Agriscience Research Proficiencies have finally arrived. What do you think? Is this a change you can live with, work with, and get kids to apply for?

What about the National Chapter Awards application? What do you think of the portion that requires members to report the chapter’s standing in relation to 100 percent membership and participation?

And for those of you who have the agriscience fair figured out, what are your thoughts regarding the prequalifying round before they can exhibit at convention?

Share your thoughts on these questions or other ch-ch-ch-changes to national events, awards and applications at the NAAE Communities of Practice.
