The Elmwood FFA recently participated in the Regional FFA Evaluation at Bowling Green High School. Six of the chapter's officers and assistant officers entered their respective officer books where they were ranked against other books from throughout Northwest Ohio.
The chapter's secretary's book entered by Secretary Taylor Barndt and Assistant Secretary Makayla Mohre scored a perfect score of 100 points and ranked first in the district out of 16 entries.
Another officer book entered was the treasurer's book. This entry found Treasurer Morgan Huff and Assistant Treasurer Marisa Ayala also receiving a perfect score of 100 points and ranking first out of 15 in District 1. Their book included a monthly record of receipts and disbursements, individual members records, a record of all chapter special projects, and a budget and inventory record.
The third officer book entered by the chapter was the reporter's scrapbook and it too, received a perfect 99.99 points. This meant that Reporter Meagan Wise and Assistant Reporter Ashley Veryser ranked first out of 17 District 1 reporters. The scrapbook included copies of all chapter news articles and pictures, copies of chapter newsletters, and snapshots of chapter activities with captions.

Should lone entry get a 'blue ribbon' automatically at fair? PDF Print E-mail
Written by BILL RYAN, Sentinel Farm Editor

At February's meeting of the Senior Fair Board, members entered into many discussions and resolved to have the committees bring many of the decisions back to the board at the March meeting.
One of the more animated discussions centered on how placements should be made at the fair in departments when there might only be one entry in a category. Most of the directors believed that entry should automatically be awarded first place as it was the best, though only one, shown at the fair. At least one department chair noted that the judge in that department is fundamentally opposed to giving what they see as an inferior exhibit a first place award if it is not "deserving" of a blue ribbon.
Also focusing on entries, there was also some discussion about timing, noting some department entries, such as the produce in farm goods or flowers in the flower show, are impossible to predict very far in advance of the fair and thus, they should be allowed to have same-day entries. Board members also discussed the merits of having some entry fees in certain departments or categories, but not in others.
The grounds committee also notified members of upcoming projects such as replacing the roof on the "red roof" horse barn, painting the rabbit barn, as well as replacing doors on both the draft horse and rabbit barns.
