This past month the Sleepy Eye FFA chapter recognized a select group of distinguished members who donated much of their time to the FFA throughout the summer. These 31 members were named the 2019 Sleepy Eye FFA Summer All-Stars.

In order for these students to become a summer all-star, each student had to attend or participate in seven FFA events or activities over the summer months. The summer FFA activities included: Farm Safety events where the members teach children safety skills at Corn Days, Party in the Park, and Farm Fest; Corn Days Parade, and the FFA Kiddy Barn at the Brown County Fair. FFA members had many other experiences as well to contribute to their recognition as well. For other summer events, students could show livestock at the county and state level, attend camps at which they learned many valuable life and leadership skills, and go on the Summer Ag Tours.

It is because of the chapter’s dedicated members that all these Sleepy Eye FFA Summer Events are able to happen.
