At the area contest, the Grantsville chapter competed in the creed speaking event. in this event, the individual is required to memorize and recite the FFA creed and then answer questions that revolve around the creed. In this competition, Tate Johnson took first place, which means he will go on to compete at state in a few weeks in March. Stephanie Jordan also represented our chapter very well.
In the prepared public speaking event, Bridger Sparks took second place. In this event, the individual writes and prepares a six- to eight-minute speech that they also have to memorize. After the individual recites it, they are asked questions concerning the agriculture topics.
Grantsville also had a parliamentary procedure team which placed second. In this event the students are given scenarios and they have to be able to go through and exercise how it would be used in parliamentary procedure. They have to do this through an actual parliamentary procedure case.
Students also competed in a competition based on proficiency in one or more of their supervised agricultural experiences (SAE). In this category, Porter Williams earned proficiency in beef and agricultural mechanics; Lindsey Johnson earned proficiency for sheep production; Reannon Justice won for goat production; Dakota Williams earned proficiency for swine production; Teri Dawn Haws won for equine; and Sparks won for diversified livestock, diversified agriculture production, poultry, forage, and food science and technology.
