Both the Agronomy and Livestock Judging teams won state competitions.
The members of the Agronomy team are Alexis Sosh (High Individual in the contest), Sarah Randall (2nd high), Makayla Richter (5th high) and Adriana Crockett (6th high). This is the first ever win for Boyle County in the Agronomy contest- although it was only our fourth ever attempt! This team absolutely obliterated the competition with the 2nd place team 121 points behind us. The Agronomy team will now move on to compete in the national contest at the National FFA Convention in October.
The members of the Livestock Judging team are Cody Glasscock (High overall individual in the contest), Taylor Graves (2nd high overall, 1st high in goat and 1st high in swine), and Ethan Ellis (9th high overall). This was the first win in this contest for Boyle County since 2009. Unfortunately, the livestock team will not be able to compete in the national contest because all those members are already competing in national competitions and scheduling conflicts will prevent them from competing in multiple contests.
Michaela Carpenter also placed 13th overall in the Seed Identification contest.
The Boyle County chapter is also a top 10 finalist for Models of Innovation in Community Development, which is based on our chapter activities throughout the year related to community development.
Congrats to all students who participated and good luck our students who will compete at the National Convention later this year!
