Students use the scientific process as they reinforce skills and principles they have learned in agriscience courses. They conduct research projects and prepare a scientific report and display for judging at the state level.

State winners in each category in divisions 3-6 are awarded $1,000 scholarship.  State winners in each category in divisions 1-2 are awarded $250 scholarship.  All state winners will advance to the National FFA Summer Judging Process and are eligible to compete at the National FFA Agriscience Fair held in conjunction with National FFA Convention.  

All state winners will need to visit the Texas FFA Foundation webpage and follow the steps on how to claim an award scholarship.
