On the week of Oct. 25-28 the 90th National FFA convention was held in Indianapolis IN. Students from the Springville FFA had the opportunity to attend this convention and Expo. While in attendance students expanded their knowledge by attending workshops and taking tours of local businesses. These tours included, Jeptha Creed Distillery, Undulata Farm, KyBlueGrass Genetics, Schaffer Hogs and Abbott’s Candy Factory.

On Friday morning Springville FFA members participated in a day of service in which they filled boxes for their senior food program. Each box weighed 40 pounds and contained items such canned fruit, vegetables and meat as well as cereal and shelf stable milk. During our two hour shift we were able to package 588 of these boxes!

Four students, Kameron Talbot, Brooke Larsen, Cailynn Hackworth and Sadie Rasmussen also had the opportunity to represent the state of Utah for the Agricultural Communications Career Development Event. The National FFA Agricultural Communications CDE is a competitive event that tests students’ skills in all areas of the agricultural communication field, and evaluates how well they can apply classroom knowledge to real-life situations. Participants attend a simulated news conference and use the information gathered to complete individual practicums in writing, electronic media and design. Our team was awarded a silver ranking.

It was a great time had by all and much learning as well as some fun.
