Students interested in raising a goat, lamb, or pig as their first project can apply for the SAE $500 scholarship. This scholarship can be used to purchase the market animal and any left over funds can be used for feed and supplies. Students will be responsible for thanking their sponsor at the beginning and letting them know how their project did at the end of the year. If you are interested in applying for this scholarship please see the scholarship application below and return to your teacher by September 30, 2019.
It is our honor to announce that out of over 1,000 FFA chapters in Texas, the Rusk FFA has been ranked as the number 2 chapter in the state according to the National Chapter Award. The Rusk FFA also earned their 12th consecutive 3 Star rating at the National level, extending the Rusk FFA streak of the longest 3 Star rated chapter in Texas. The 3 star national rating and Gold Emblem State rating are the highest ratings a chapter may receive.
The Rusk FFA was also a State Gold Emblem Chapter according to the Golden Horizon Award. We hope that you the student and parents will take full advantage of all that the Rusk Agriculture Department and FFA has to offer.
Students enrolled in agriculture classes are automatically inactive members of the National FFA Organization and will receive the FFA New Horizons magazine free of charge. Students may become active members and enjoy the full benefits of the organization by paying their local Rusk FFA dues of $5.00.
