The Winona FFA Chapter has a state champion.

Kinsley Keeling’s research project titled “Soil Management Using Isopods” claimed the top spot in the Agriscience Fair at the Minnesota State FFA Convention last month. Keeling will present her project at the national convention next fall. 

Keeling’s state title wasn’t the only highlight of the trip.
