r By National FFArBENJAMIN – The National FFA Organization announced today that Jake Jones from Benjamin was selected as a national finalist for the National FFA Proficiency Award in Wildlife Production and Management – Entrepreneurship/Placement. Jones is one of only four people chosen to compete for this award at the national finals to be held this October during the 90th National FFA Convention & Expo in Indianapolis.

The proficiency awards recognize outstanding student achievement in agribusiness gained through establishment of a new business, working for an existing company or otherwise gaining hands-on career experience. The Wildlife Production and Management – Entrepreneurship/Placement award is one of 47 proficiency program areas FFA members can participate in to develop valuable experience and leadership skills at the local, state and national levels. Jake’s proficiency includes his business of J and J Trapping where he traps nuisance animals and removes them from areas. In addition, he raises pheasants to be released to the wild.

Jones, a member of the Spanish Fork FFA Chapter, became eligible for the national award after winning the Utah state FFA competition earlier this year. In recognition of being a finalist, each of the four finalists will receive a plaque and $500. The national winner of the Wildlife Production and Management – Entrepreneurship/Placement Award will receive an additional $500 during a special ceremony at the National FFA Convention & Expo.

This award is sponsored by Yamaha Motor Corporation USA as a special project of the National FFA Foundation.
