Leadership Development Events focus on creating situations for members to demonstrate their abilities in public speaking, decision making, communication and their knowledge of agriculture and the FFA organization. Team and individual events are used to reinforce what is taught in agricultural science classrooms. 

The 81st Texas FFA Leadership Career Development Events were hosted by Sam Houston State University, December 2-3, 2016. With an exception of the seven-year hiatus created by World War II and one-year operating at the state convention in Marshall in 1941, these events have been hosted continuously by SHSU since 1931. 

Members qualified for the state competition by finishing first or second in one of the state’s 57 district competitions and first or second in one of ten area competitions. 

Statewide participation grew in 2016. Six of 13 events set all-time participation high marks and chapter participation was 85.48%, down from 86.67% a year ago. In 2000, when statewide participation was first tracked, chapter participation was only 71.88%. Overall, 6,197 entries began the journey in 57 district competitions across the state. Six districts had 100% chapter participation.
