        Penta Career Center/Genoa High School agricultural education teacher Tricia Schoen was surprised with an assembly in her honor March 3 at Genoa High School, where she was recognized by the Ohio FFA Foundation as a Golden Owl Honoree.
        Presented by Nationwide, the Ohio FFA, Ohio Farm Bureau, Farm Credit Mid-America and AgCredit, the Ohio Golden Owl Award recognizes agricultural educators across Ohio who have made a significant difference in the lives of students and in their community through their dedication to the profession. Students, fellow teachers and other supporters can nominate their agricultural teacher and summarize what makes him or her the best in the state.
        Prizes include $500 to each of the 10 honorees’ school ag program and an engraved plaque to each honoree.
        Nominees have an opportunity to win the title of Ohio Agricultural Educator of the Year and cash prizes for their school’s ag program. The chapter of the winning advisor will receive $3,000 as a grand prize, and the teacher will be awarded the Golden Owl trophy.
        Schoen and other honorees will submit a final application and be interviewed by the Educator of the Year selection committee.
