Our Future Farmer of America
So Addie has been able to participate in the high school FFA program this spring, even though she is still in middle school. She was invited to be part of a food science judging team and a dairy food judging team. Last week "districts" were held at our school. Addie was thrilled- the team took first place and she took first place in individuals. This week Monday and Tuesday, the STATE competition took place at OSU... FFA teams from all over the state met and competed. Addie was completely thrilled to find out that the team took 3rd overall in the state and amazingly she placed 9th in individuals!!!!! Sadly enough a new rule had been put into place- "no 8th graders or teams with 8th graders allowed to place". Meaning that she didnt get recognized for her 9th in state finish and the entire team didn't get recognized for finishing 3rd in state... she is happily looking forward to being able to compete for "real" next year!!
