|Taylorville High School junior Lizzie Schafer is now a two-time, back-to-back National FFA Science Fair champion.|
A National FFA Science Fair title is already a prestigious award, but Schafer moved into entirely elite territory as a back-to-back winner, which is an exceptionally rare feat and one never before accomplished by a THS student.
In the animal systems division, Schafer was awarded first place on Tuesday afternoon for her project that compared grade-one versus grade-two cattle embryos in order to determine if the latter have a better chance to produce female offspring.
Schafer competed against a field that initially featured the top animal systems projects from FFA students across all 50 states.
