On September 11 and 12, FFA students went to the OklahomaState Fair for their grass bundles. Grass bundles can be  made out of Purpletop, Big Bluestem, Little Bluestem, and other grasses.

Grass bundles are pieces of grass that are laid on each other to form a big bundle of grass, and then they are tied as tightly as possible. It can take up to two weeks to gather and properly tie a bundle. Color, size, and tightness of bundles are all things judges look for at the Oklahoma State Fair. 

The FFA members won the sweepstakes award for the second year in a row. Josh Shugart placed second in Alfalfa hay. Levi Shaw placed first place in grass hay. Weston Waldrep placed first, and Josh Edwards placed second in alfalfa bundles. Taylor Dowell placed second in Foxtail. Jake Sinclair placed first and Hudsen Scott placed second in Pearl Millet. Will Blood placed second in native grass bundle (Little Bluestem). Arianna Green placed first in native brass bundle (Sand Lovegrass).  Claysen Scott placed first in native grass (Indian). Mckenna Penner placed first in Purpletop.
