Frisco Centennial FFA students proudly brought home a victory from the 84th National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, IN. Frisco Centennial FFA members Brooke Cummings, Kayla Wogaman, Austin Hinson, Brooklyn Tyler and Tiffany Riley, accompanied by advisors Bryan Scheu and Jennifer Jackson, traveled to Indianapolis last week for the convention in order to compete in the National Hall of States Contest.
The Hall of States Contest is a fairly new contest to the FFA. Each state must select a group of individuals to represent them at the National Convention. The focus of the contest is for members, alumni or other groups from the state to create a booth that will depict agriculture in their state as well as the FFA opportunities provided to the youth of that state.
Frisco Centennial’s booth was an enlarged replica of an iPhone. Inside the booth are many “apps” that, when lifted, give information regarding that topic. Some of the topics included: Texas Usage of Alternative Resources, Crops, Landmarks, Texas History and array of information regarding Texas and the National FFA.
After working very hard this summer to develop the idea for the booth and then to construct the design, Frisco Centennial’s Prospect for their iFFA Booth was selected and they were chosen to represent Texas at the State FFA Convention in Lubbock! (Students not able to attend include: Mike Rauch, Jacob Schluns and Charlee Reed) After the State Contest, students and advisors returned to Frisco and got busy fundraising for their fall trip to Indianapolis. Many states were represented in Indianapolis but Frisco Centennial was declared the winner Thursday during the convention!
