COLUMBUS — The 90th Ohio FFA State Convention has drawn to a conclusion. As we take a look at the convention in review we are proud to honor those students who have transformed the future of agriculture and have earned exemplary awards.

Chyann Kendel of the Twin Valley South-MVCTC FFA Chapter was the 2018 state winner in the area of Small Animal Production and Care. Students who complete this project own the enterprise, or work for a business that includes the best management practices available to efficiently produce and market small animals such as all rabbits, cats, dogs, mice, hedgehogs, guinea pigs, lizards, small birds (such as canaries, cockatiels, cockatoos, parakeets, parrots, etc.,) and programs that typically provide a service in caring for the wellbeing of pets. Programs could include working at a pet shop, as a groomer, as a dog trainer, providing pet sitting services, working at a kennel, or preparing guide and assistance animals.

The Ohio FFA Foundation is proud to sponsor this proficiency award.
