On Wednesday, April 4, fourteen Shelton FFA members traveled to Lincoln for the 90th Nebraska State FFA Convention. These fourteen members spent the three days of convention competing in competitions, participating in leadership workshops and convention sessions, industry and campus tours, as well as meeting members from across the state. We had two members who competed in Public Speaking events, both qualifying for finals. Jaylea Pope placed first with her speech on electronic identification in beef cattle, earning herself a Gold Medal in Middle School Discovery Speaking while Addison Muhlbach placed fourth, earning herself a Gold Medal as well in Natural Resources Public Speaking with her speech on sustainability in agriculture. We also had two teams recognized for their group performances. The Ag Sales team placed 21st overall, earning a red ribbon. The sales team was required to do an individual and team sale of cover crops as well as a written exam. The second team earning a ribbon was the Farm Business Management team. Their team earned a white ribbon. From the team results, several members were recognized for their individual efforts. In Ag Sales, Luryn Hendrickson earned a blue ribbon, Leroy Garcia earned a red ribbon, and Anna Palmer earned herself a white ribbon. In the Agronomy competition, Jacob Snyder received a red ribbon, while Ben Bombeck earned a white ribbon. Ben Bombeck and Sara Palmer both received blue individual ribbons in the Natural Resources competition.
