Imperial chapter members were invited to the 74th national FFA convention in Louisville, Ky., where they were recognized. Members who attended the conference were president Stacey Masters, vice president Julie Browning and sweetheart Connie Seidel.

The national FFA chapter award program recognizes FFA chapters for developing and conducting a detailed program of activities. These activities and projects provide citizenship, personal and leadership development opportunities to students.

Each activity is categorized into one of the three areas: student, chapter or community development. Every year chapters are recognized as having earned a one-, two- or three- star rating on their application. The three-star rating is the highest level of accomplishment a chapter may achieve.
