Anne Runde of Janesville was selected as a national finalist for the National FFA Proficiency Award in Specialty Crop Production—Entrepreneurship/Placement.
Runde is one of only four people chosen to compete for the award at the national finals, which were held in October in Indianapolis.
Proficiency awards recognize outstanding student achievement in agribusiness. Such achievement is gained by establishing a new business, working for an existing company or getting other hands-on career experience.
Runde, a member of the Craig High School FFA chapter, became eligible for the national award after winning the Wisconsin FFA competition earlier this year.
