Two McPherson County FFA students took advantage of trying new contests and expanding their knowledge at the District 9 FFA CDE contest. There are a wide range of contests in which FFA members have the opportunity to try throughout the year and step out of their comfort zone! CDE contests provide opportunities to learn about the endless possibilities in the agriculture industry!
We had guest speakers from NE 4-H extension provide the real colors personality assessment to all 7-12th grade students! Real Colors is a PERSPECTIVE-not a label! They learned to recognize their own strengths and the strengths of others, understand how others process information, and recognize the learning styles of others. Students also learned about preferences and perceptions!
The FFA Chapter and Ag Leadership students are participating in the Farm Bureau Connecting Chapters Program. One component of the program is to teach youth about agriculture. Students will match farm animals with their young, learn the proper terminology for males, females, and baby animals, identify the products each farm animal produces, and learn basic facts about how animals are cared for on a farm. Agvocating for agriculture!
McPherson County FFA Chapter attended the Nebraska Cattlemen’s Classic. Students were given a topic in the morning in which they worked together to develop a short presentation from conversations they had with vendors and cattle producers! The topic this year was “How has COVID-19 impacted/affected your operation or business?”. Students had the opportunity to network with people involved in the agriculture industry as well as watch the cattle breed shows! We had the youngest team compete in the contest and I’m proud of them for stepping up to the challenge!
Valentine Candy grams were delivered to all students!! The guess how many heart sweet tarts in the jar/mailbox, closest without going over winners are Isaac in the JH-HS category and Pierce Phelps in the elementary category, Shelly Apperson is the winner for the staff division!
