If you would like to participate in this contest, please have a representative from your chapter to present your project. Each participating FTA Chapter will send a YouTube video, slideshow, power point presentation or a report of a community service project your chapter participated in last year or this fall. The projects will be viewed at the meeting and a winner announced. Send your service projects to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your chapter does not have a community service project for the contest, please have a representative appointed to report other activities or fundraisers your chapter participated in or have planned for the future.
FTA State Ambassador Candidates
There will be four FTA State Ambassadors. A state ambassador cannot be a senior in high school when they run for office. Ambassadors will be installed upon their election and serve for one year. Candidates interested in serving as an ambassador will fill out a form before the state meeting and must have a 5 minute (maximum) speech prepared to present at the meeting. No more than two ambassadors can be from the same school. State ambassadors are responsible for planning and officiating the next state meeting, as well as keeping the FTA Facebook page up-to-date with activities, service project events and fundraisers.
