HILSMAN STUDENTS TAKE TOP HONORS AT NATIONAL FFA AGRISCIENCE FAIR

 

Four Students from Hilsman Middle School traveled to compete at the National FFA Agriscience Fair in Indianapolis Indiana. These Students placed 1st in the state contest in April, moved on to the top 12 in August and winners were announced at this National competition during the weekend of October 26-28, 2018.

We are pleased to announce that four of our competitors took top honors, they are:

Emma McElhannon and Ella Barkdoll, who placed 1st in the nation with their animal science project on the amount of protein in horse feed and Ella Johnson and Tory Ratajczak, who placed 2nd in the nation in the social science category with their project on dog food preference and data on overfeeding and underfeeding dogs in the Athens, GA area.

“This is an amazing accomplishment,” said Demond Means, Superintendent of Clarke County Schools. “The Clarke County School District is so proud to add National Winner to our list of accomplishments and these young women are just an example of how limitless our students are.”
