Submitted by Alexis Peckenschneider
Four members of the Linn-Mar Chapter participated in the Northeast District FFA Contests and Convention at Sumner-Fredericksburg High School recently.
Paige Adams, Zach Byers, Riley Hildebrand and Breanna Milburn participated in the Chapter FFA Quiz competition. Adams and Hildebrand were the District Champions in the team competition. Individually, Paige Adams placed third and Riley Hildebrand placed fifth. Byers and Milburn received a bronze rating.
The Chapter FFA Quiz consisted of 75 questions about the history of FFA. Contestants were asked additional questions related to names and duties of current district and state officers and about the upcoming State FFA Leadership Conference. Adams and Hildebrand represented the chapter as voting delegates during the business session. Page Adams was awarded the State FFA Academic Achievement Award during the awards ceremony.
Riley Hildebrand was a district FFA officer candidate. While she did not make the final ballot, she said she learned a lot from participating in the interview process. Hildebrand said, “This experience has taught me a lot, not only about FFA, but about myself and how I can overcome challenges. Next year I plan to go through the process again.”
