Ag News

AHS’ own Tyler Brannan won the Polk County Star FFA Greenhand Contest yesterday evening!

He will be awarded his first place trophy at the annual Polk County Federation Banquet in May.  He will also receive a $150 credit towards his travel cost to the National FFA Convention in October. Then, at our AHS FFA Banquet May 10th, he will receive a $100 check from Mr. Charles Bronson.

Tyler had to turn in his classroom notebook and Supervised Agricultural Experience record book (hog record book) for grading, take a 75 question General Ag knowledge test, and give a 3-5 minute speech.

He wrote and presented and very interesting speech on how technology has changed the way we work in agriculture.

We are very proud of his accomplishment!  Great job!
