Lone Star FFA Degree Check Information
1. Please be sure to check your district list and the area committee list to see if you are scheduled to help with the LSF record book check. If so, please be prepared to help the entire time – we have had many years where we were down to just a handful of people after lunch time. This severely hampers our ability to do a thorough check of the books.
2. All Star Lonestar Degree candidates’ record books and applications should be dropped off on May 20st by 8:30 am in the Ag Commons so they can be checked first. For Star Lonestars, please bring an extra application for the Lonestar room.
3. If your books are not complete, do not bring them. We will only accept record books and applications that are complete including signatures and check sheets. Bottom line: have the books completed at the convention or we will not accept the application.
4. All Lone Star Applications and Record Books must be picked up by advisors when the check is completed. Absolutely no applications will remain with the Lone Star Degree committee. This will be done in an attempt to have all applications 100% correct before being returned to Blanco HS on June 6th. 

**Second Lone Star Degree Check will be June 5, 2017 at Blanco High School**
