As many of you know, for years I have been enamored with FFA. It helps to mold kids, good kids, by teaching them core values, agricultural values, and introducing them to peers with the same mindsets. Here's a snippet behind why I think this way. David Sparks, Idaho AG today reporting from a recent FFA meeting. Speaker2: So basically the conference, each FFA chapter has district competitions and they compete at those and they qualify to come to this conference. So we have various different competitions at this conference. And then for those not competing, we have workshops and it works a lot on leadership skills, speaking skills, all different areas and it's like a four day conference and the competition's just mixed in with it. And then we get to know our state leaders a little bit better and then elect new state leaders from the next year. Speaker3: Our lives and our program is actually for those that are ages 18 to 35. So basically when you guys graduate, we have someone that's pretty similar kind of like to FFA to get those that are involved in agriculture, interested in agriculture, just another spot for you to kind of do what you're doing. Speaker4: My favorite part probably about the whole thing is meeting new friends, meeting new people. I did livestock judging and for like right at the last minute. Speaker1: I rest my case. Again.
