Students who are sophomores to freshman in college can apply. Each of these record book areas includes an extensively detailed record book of paid or unpaid hours and students ownership in their projects. Students keep track of their income and expenses, goals and skills while describing their roles and responsibilities with their project. Each school in our district can submit one entry in each of the 44 proficiency areas and two students advance to state. There are 36 schools that make up our Northeast District and there were 133 total submissions in our district. Great Job South Winn FFA!!!
