Our Ag Communications team placed 1st at our district contest. They will be competing at the State FFA convention in April. The team consists of a news writer (Skye K.), video production (Garrett O.), Opinion Writer (Kathryn P.), and Web designer (Carlie R.). Students attend a mock “news conference” and create their line of communication after attending. The FFA chapter had 15 students compete at the District CDE in Livestock evaluation. Students evaluate cattle, sheep, goats and hogs for desirable traits and place the animals accordingly.Lilian P. sang in the National FFA Chorus. She was among only 85 other members who qualified. While at the Convention she sang at multiple sessions, concerts and other FFA events. Ten students attended National FFA convention in Indianapolis, IN. Students attended sessions, leadership workshops, career development workshops, watched finals in different LSEs, and attended a huge career fair where they could speak with different companies and schools in the ag industry. We also toured the Indianapolis Speedway where the students got to “kiss the bricks”.
Lilian P. has been chosen through taped audition to participate in the national FFA choir during the national FFA convention in Indianapolis during the week of October 25th through October 28th. Lil will accompany a delegation of participants from the Wilcox-Hildreth FFA. Congratulations Lil—what an honor!!!!!!
