FFA Continues to Excel Through State Success


Conestoga FFA

Murray, Neb.- Recently, Conestoga’s FFA team competed at state against the top 25 percent of schools from each FFA district across the state. There were multiple activities at the competition including: agriscience competition, farm & agribusiness management, nursery landscape, and natural resources just to name a few.

Other activities included: sessions with awards and keynote speakers, meal packing event with the Living to Serve project, greenhouse tour, leadership workshops, and watching leadership events. “Our chapter was recognized for participating in the Connecting Chapters Program where we read and donate a book to an elementary school, teach agriculture lessons, and meet with the local country farm bureau”, explained Mrs. Taylor.

As well as Brink Stawniak earning his State FFA Degree, “which is the highest award on the state level for students that are active FFA members for over two years, have an SAE, and meet certain leadership and community service requirements,” Mrs. Taylor went on to explain.

When asked what their future goals were, Taylor stated, “have more students qualify and ribbon,” (only the top half earn a ribbon). We can only continue to support our FFA team as they make their way toward accomplishing their goals in the future.
