WHAT IS THE AGRISCIENCE FAIR?

The FFA Agriscience Fair is a competition for FFA members who are interested in the science and technology of agriculture. The Tennessee FFA Agriscience Fair is held each year during the State FFA Convention. 
State winners compete in the National FFA Agriscience Fair during the
National FFA Convention.

To compete in the FFA Agriscience Fair, members must 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 a report.  Members can compete in in 1 of 6 categories:

  • Animal Systems
  • Environmental Services/Natural Resource Systems
  • Food Products and Processing Systems
  • Plant Systems
  • Power, Structural and Technical Systems
  • Social Systems

 CHASE PARTIN finishes 5th Place, Gold Emblem, in the 
National FFA Agriscience Fair!
 


Chase Partin placed 5th in the 2012 National FFA Agriscience Fair, winning Gold Emblem! 
The Fair was held during the 85th National FFA Convention in Indianapolis. 
Chase competed against state-winning FFA members from across the nation.
 

The process included an application explaining his research, a written research paper, a log book, a display of the research, and an interview with collegiate-level judges. He made new discoveries in the research.  The judges enjoyed their interview with Chase; their interview turned into a conversation.

Chase's experience was extremely rewarding.  He met and made friends with competitors, getting to know their different backgrounds, yet all being connected through FFA.  Chase added, "It doesn't seem like you are competing against each other. It seems like you are competing with each other."  5th place in the Nation is a job well done!

Chase qualified by winning the State Agriscience Fair this spring and was one of 15 National Finalists chosen (up to one applicant from each state).
