From November 2017 report by FFA Reporter Breeanna Hicks
For the North Hopkins FFA Chapter, this past month has been spent competing in LDEs and preparing for the holidays. Now that LDEs are done with, the chapter can finally take a quick breather before the upcoming stock show in February.
In the Leadership Development Events, we had a great outcome with success at both the District and Area Levels. At District competition The North Hopkins FFA Chapter brought home many awards. North Hopkins received 8th in Job Interview, 7th in Radio Broadcasting, and 5th in Senior Creed Speaking. The chapter also received 3rd in Greenhand Chapter Conducting, Greenhand Skills, Public Relations, Senior Quiz and Senior Skill. The chapter also took 2nd place in Greenhand Quiz, Greenhand Creed Speaking and Senior Chapter Conducting.
While at the Area competition, the chapter received a few awards as well. Senior skills, Senior Quiz, Senior Chapter Conducting, Public Relations and Greenhand skills all placed 11th at Area contest. Along with this, the Greenhand Creed Speaker placed 9th, Greenhand Quiz placed 5th and Greenhand Chapter Conducting placed 3rd. While none of the teams advanced past the Area level, it was an enjoyable experience for the whole chapter. The chapter First Vice President also competed in Dallas Texas with her prepared speech.
With the holidays approaching, the chapter will be busy tying up loose ends before Christmas break. After the break, everything will start back up again and the chapter will be as busy as usual.
