FFA District Leadership Contest
On February 6th, 2013, the high school of Adrian, Oregon held the FFA District Leadership Contest for the FFA members of the Snake River District. The chapters that participated in this year’s contest included Ontario, Vale, Nyssa, Jordan Valley, Adrian, and Crane. Students were preparing their speeches, getting some last minute studying done for the Cooperatives Quiz, and getting ready to do some professional arguing for the Parliamentary Procedure event before it was their time to compete.
The Ontario FFA Chapter is very proud to announce our recent success from this year’s contest. With our Advance Parliamentary Procedure Team placing 1st and our Beginning Parliamentary Procedure Team placing 3rd. In Advanced Prepared Public Speaking Brecklin Milton placed 1st and Derek Morales placed 5th. In Sophomore Prepared Public Speaking Morgan Springer placed 4th. In Beginning Prepared Public Speaking Ben Wyborney place 1st and Lacie Bacon placed 4th. In Creed Speaking Rosemary Oliva placed 1st and Kelsey Alexander placed 3rd. In Extemporaneous Speaking Carter Fritsch place 1st and Jessica Roland 2nd. In the Cooperatives Quiz Whitney Oliva placed 1st, Brecklin Milton placed 2nd, Reilly Collins placed 4th, and Monique Cheatham placed 8th.
During this contest, two delegates from each chapter were chosen to vote for the new District Officer Team. We are also proud to announce that one of our Ontario Chapter members, Brecklin Milton, was elected the new District President.
The Ontario Advance Parliamentary Procedure Team and the top two competitors of the speaking events: Advanced Prepared Public Speaking, Beginning Prepared Public Speaking, Creed Speaking, and Extemporaneous Speaking; are all attending the Sectional Leadership Contest on February 21st held in LaGrand Oregon. The top two competitors of the Cooperatives Quiz will be heading straight to the Oregon State Convention on March 22nd held in Corvallis, Oregon. The students are all so excited to be able to compete once again and spend time with their fellow FFA members.
