As a star fi­nal­ist, Kaitlin Hal­lam re- ceives $2,000 from the Na­tional FFA Foun­da­tion.

A panel of judges will in­ter­view fi­nal- ists and se­lect one win­ner for each award at the 89th Na­tional FFA Con­ven­tion & Expo, Oct. 19 through 22, in In­di­anapo­lis. The four win­ners will re­ceive an ad­di­tion- al $2,000 and be an­nounced at the con- ven­tion and expo’s third gen­eral ses­sion as part of the Stars Over Amer­ica Pageant
