Crothersville FFA was well represented at the District XI Leadership contest held at West Washington High School on Saturday, March 5. FFA members from 18 other chapters gathered to compete in leadership contests.
“This is like our sectional”, said Linda Begley, Crothersville FFA Advisor. “Members select and prepare their presentations from the categories and rules set forth by Indiana FFA. It takes many dedicated hours of preparation to just place against other teams. We are very happy with our results.”
