2001 - Exceptional Merit Award - Youth/Mixed Ages - Alva FFA

For the past six years, the 100-member-strong Alva FFA has worked as the heart and soul of the Alva Tree Board, making an impressive impact on the community. The FFA students not only have planted and mulched over 500 trees, they also have planted several hundred seedlings and received grants for an additional thousand.

For Arbor Day, the students were responsible for the program held on the North West Oklahoma State University campus. They made flyers for the celebration, conducted media interviews, and planted a survivor tree from the Oklahoma City bombing.

This past year, they established a tree farm with over 500 seedlings successfully potted and growing. The judges called it “a very strong and successful program which deserves much praise.” We’re proud to say THE ALVA FFA IS GOOD NEWS FOR THE ENVIRONMENT TAKING ROOT IN OKLAHOMA!
