The Udall FFA chapter received the prestigious Triple Crown award at the final session of the virtual 92nd Kansas FFA Convention, May 27–29, 2020.
Under guidance from advisor Aaron Sobba, the Udall FFA chapter earned the highest combined score over three separate divisions: Building Communities, Growing Leaders and Strengthening Agriculture. The chapter engaged in activities to promote career success, leadership, citizenship, agricultural advocacy, chapter recruitment, and much more.
The chapter will receive $500 and the Garlow Memorial Trophy, which is sponsored by the Bill Garlow Family in memory of past Kansas FFA officer Bob Garlow.
Runners-up for the Triple Crown award were as follows: Southeast of Saline FFA in second place; Beloit FFA in third place; Ellsworth FFA in fourth place; and Sedan FFA in fifth place.
The Triple Crown award is given to the FFA chapter that performs the best in the National Chapter Award program, which recognizes chapters that actively implement the mission and strategies of the organization in the three divisions. Awards are given in each of these three areas in the divisions of bronze, silver, and gold. Chapters in the gold division qualify as finalists for the Triple Crown.
