Springville competed at the area contest on Monday, January 28, in Heber, Utah. Several FFA members were able to compete in several contests, and all did very well!
Springville was able to compete in the Conduct of Chapter Meetings. In this contest, they complete a mock officer meeting and are judged on how well they implement parliamentary procedure. Because of their dedication to learning the contest, the team won 1st place, and they’ll represent the Springville Chapter at State Convention in this contest in March. Those who competed on this team were Karly Bracken, Taylor Benson, Maggie Miller, Mckenzie Nielsen, Zoe Sumsion, Jocelyn Mendez, and Syd Averett.
Springville also had an FFA member compete in Discussion Meet, which is sponsored by Farm Bureau. In this competition, FFA members participate in a discussion about problems facing agriculture. Kameron Talbot was there to represent Springville and won 1st place. He will also represent Springville at State Convention in this competition.
Springville FFA members competed in the Creed contest as well. Audrey Hawkins and Noah Jacobson showed their skills in public speaking as they recited the FFA Creed, a 5 paragraph statement of beliefs. Kameron Talbot also competed in the Extemporaneous Public speaking contest and took 3rd place. Congratulations to our winners and good luck at State!!!
