Pettisville FFA Celebrates National FFA Week

To celebrate FFA week this year, the Pettisville FFA held their CDE, or Career Development Event, challenge as an alternative to the traditional 4-8th grade activity.  Members were each assigned to a CDE with a partner. They researched and studied the CDE and created 10 questions that they could use to quiz fellow FFA members. The students took each other’s quizzes to test their knowledge on other FFA CDEs through the Kahoot website.  Students kept track of their scores as they took the quizzes and the member(s) with the highest score from each class won a prize. 

The winners in the freshman ag class were Kaleb Wyse and Sophie Sterken. The winners for the sophomore ag class were Johan Harmon and Jaret Beck. Nate Rupp and Carson Bennett both won for the junior ag class. Ben Morris won out of the members in the Ag Mechanics class and Kearsten Zuver won for the senior ag class. FFA members also enjoyed donuts and cookies that were provided to them by the FFA Alumni and Friends group. We would like to thank the Pettisville FFA Alumni for their generous support of our members. To wrap up FFA week, the chapter held our annual Greenhand and Chapter Degree ceremonies. Thirty members received their Greenhand degree and 11 members received their Chapter degree. We also awarded 29 members with candy bars for receiving an A in Ag and/or making the honor roll. The Alumni also awarded Grace Schnitkey and Sophie Sterken each with a grant to help fund their Supervised Agricultural Experience, or SAE, projects.
