INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana FFA Association named its 2022 State Stars as a part of its 93rd Indiana FFA State Convention.
After submitting an application, a personal interview, as well as a site visit, these members were deemed Star Finalists in their respective categories. Members determined as Star Finalists then are interviewed for a chance to be named as a State Star in these four prestigious award areas: Star Farmer, Star in Agricultural Placement, Star in Agribusiness and Star in Agriscience. They found out the results on June 15 at the Hoosier Degree Session during the 93rd Indiana State FFA Convention at Purdue University.
Those determined as State Stars in each of the categories received a scholarship for $250 sponsored by The Jeff Lehman Family. They will also receive a plaque and a copy of the Star videos showcasing each candidates’ program, which are sponsored by Beck’s Hybrids. Elanco Animal Health sponsored the State Star Banquet for the Stars and their family held during the 93rd Indiana FFA State Convention.
Below are the names and chapter of each State Star:
- Star in Agricultural Placement — Cason Lambert, Carroll @ Flora FFA Chapter
