Magnolia High School Student Places in National FFA Agriscience Fair

FFA members compete in the national agriscience fair in one of six categories: Animal Systems; Environmental Services/Natural Resource Systems; Food Products and Processing Systems; Plant Systems; Power, Structural and Technical Systems; and Social Systems.

To qualify for the National FFA Agriscience Fair, students must be in grades seven through 12, conduct a scientific research project pertaining to the agriculture and food science industries and present their findings to a panel of judges with a display and report. Coltin scored above the national average in 17 of the 18 categories on his research topic “Comparative Effects of Protein Levels on Egg Shells.”

All national participants are selected as the state winner at their state agriscience fairs and earn national competition eligibility after being placed in the top 15 within their respective categories.

The National FFA Organization provides leadership, personal growth and career success training through agricultural education to 649,355 student members in grades seven through 12 who belong to one of 7,859 local FFA chapters throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
