Things that ALL FFA Members Should Know
Wednesday, September 9th
Today’s focus is going to be about CDE Contests or Career Development Events. These are contest in FFA that you can compete in to win awards/money, learn skills for future jobs, and have a ton of fun going to events around the state country.
In the fall months, the one contest that is currently avaiable is Opening Ceremonies. This consists of a team of 6, 8th & 9th Graders who each have an officer position and recite the FFA Opening Ceremonies. This is an awesome introduction to public speaking. We are starting this contest THIS THURSDAY with 2 try out slots at the AG Building (10 a.m. and 4 p.m.). I would very much encourage you to come try out and learn some public speaking skills.
In the spring months, we offer an insane number of contests. Check out this link for more information on each contest area. Decide which one sounds the most intersting to you – https://www.stillwaterffa.com/30864_1

What is the difference between AG Class and FFA?
- Agriculture Class works to teach you through hands-on lessons (in a non-Covid year) through projects such as Ag Mechanics, Plant Science, Animal Science, Food Science, and more. The goal is teach you about agriculture so that you can be more informed as a consumer and possibly look at a career in agriculture
- FFA is the student organization that takes place outside of school and focus on leadership. This involves fun meetings, leadership camps and conferences, community service, scholarships (the exact amount is covered in the video), competitions, and much more. There are so many opportunities to help you break out of your shell and there is for sure something for everyone!
