Agricultural Sales Contest held at Preble Shawnee High School. There were 14 schools total in attendance at the contest for District 5.
The Ag Sales team consisted of Chase Baker, Ansley Kozarec, Mickey Neal, Tyler Michael, Grant Helsinger, Joe Gulling, Keith Kinner, and Tanner Cordes . The team members each completed a test on agricultural sales, customer service inquiry, and demonstrated their ability to sell a pre-selected agricultural based item. The teams and individuals were to sell park benches to their selected judges.
A special thank you to Jimmy Martin for his assistance in training for the competition

The National FFA Organization (formerly known as Future Farmers of America) provides leadership, personal growth and career success training through agricultural education. Today, there are 700,170 FFA members in grades seven through twelve who belong to one of 8,612 local FFA chapters throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
Our chapter members attended a Leadership Lock-in hosted by Brookville MVCTC FFA in which the members had the opportunity to develop leadership and teamwork skills. Throughout the night, fun, activity and fellowship filled the halls of the school. The evening started with paper boat making, which represented different and new ways to improve the chapter with involvement and participation. The next activity was a classic FFA game called “Nibbity Bibbles.” After that, the members ate a dinner of pizza from a local shop and other refreshments provided by the Brookville FFA Officer team. Post meal, they played mushroom ball, which is a form of dodgeball with more opponents. After that, they played Mat Ball, and finally finished the night with a good ol’ fashioned game of capture the flag. State officer, Justin Beckner, joined our leadership lock-in and talked to the members about the importance of staying involved and being leaders for our chapter to make it the best it can be.
