By Angela Askey, Executive Director of Public Relations & Marketing
More than 100 students, representing 12 high schools throughout the FFA South Central District recently attended the mid-winter Career Development Event (CDE) day at Central Arizona College.
CDEs help students develop abilities to think critically, communicate clearly, and perform effectively in a competitive job market. Some competitions allow students to compete individually while others allow them to compete as a team. At the CAC event, students competed in contests including; FFA creed, FFA information, agricultural sales, food science and wildlife.
Following is the list of winners from the November 21 event:
The National Future Farmers of America (FFA) organization was founded in 1928 by a group of young farmers with the mission of preparing future generations for the challenges of feeding a growing population. In 1988 the official name was changed to “The National FFA Organization” to reflect the growing diversity of agriculture.
Today, more than 653,359 FFA members, in grades seven through 12 throughout the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands are developing their own unique talents and exploring their interests in a broad range of career pathways.
