March 22 marked the 37th year in a row that the Chelan, Wash., FFA and Chelan High School played host to the District VII Leadership Development Event.

At stake were the four berths in the Washington State Leadership Development Events to be held at the Washington State FFA Convention May 11-13 in Pullman.

FFA Members from all over North Central Washington converged on CHS to compete in Creed Speaking, Prepared Public Speaking, Extemporaneous Public Speaking, Conduct of Meetings and Parliamentary Procedure Leadership Development Events.

Chelan had three speakers in the Creed LDE and one in the Prepared Public Speaking LDE. The Creed LDE involves reciting the five paragraphs of the FFA Creed and then answering a series of three questions. The 10 freshman members who competed shook off the nerves and did a great job of representing their chapters. When it was all said and done, Ella Tshetter of Chelan came away with a 2nd place banner and a spot in state level competition. Dee Lysiak also punched her ticket to state with a 3rd place finish. Ashlyn Sanderson placed 6th.

In the Prepared Public Speaking CDE members have to research and write a manuscript on an agriculture-related topic. The manuscript is scored for grammatical correctness, APA Style, organization and topic. They then deliver a six- to eight-minute speech to a panel of judges followed by five minutes of questions.

Ashley Oswald rose to the occasion and earned the first-place banner and a date with the State LDE on Thursday morning of State FFA Convention.

In the remainder of the spring, Chelan FFA members will compete in the Livestock CDE at Moses Lake Jr. Livestock Show, Asotin Co. Fair, St. John Community Fair, and the State CDE at the Spokane Jr. Livestock Show.

The Meats CDE team will compete at Moses Lake Jr. Livestock Show, Spokane Jr. Livestock Show and the State CDE.

Other CDE and LDE teams that will compete this spring are First Year LDE, Agriculture Issues Forum LDE, Employment Skills LDE, Farm Business Management CDE and Hall of Chapters.
