INDIANAPOLIS — Waterloo FFA of Illinois has been named the 2019 National Premier Chapter: Growing Leaders winner at the 92nd National FFA Convention & Expo in Indianapolis.
The National Chapter Award program recognizes outstanding FFA chapters that actively implement the mission and strategies of the organization. These chapters improve chapter operations using the National Quality FFA Chapter Standards and a Program of Activities that emphasizes growing leaders, building communities, and strengthening agriculture. Chapters are rewarded for providing educational experiences for the entire membership.
Waterloo FFA members created a workout video that promoted the mental and physical well-being of students in kindergarten through third grade. Members determined the age-appropriate exercises and activities and filmed and edited the video. By creating “Fun Fitness in Ag,” members worked together to create a fun activity that influenced those involved.
