Leadership Development Events

Practices will be on the days listed in class.  If you can not make it then you need to inform your advisor.  Not attending practice affects not only your performance but the entire team and may result in you being removed from the team. 

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.

Quiz Team: 
Junior & Senior Levels, An exam testing knowledge of the Grays Guide to Parliamentary Procedure for FFA and FFA knowledge including history, facts, business structure, leadership and programs is given to individuals.  Quiz Teams can be made of 3 to 4 members.
Farm Skills Team:  Junior & Senior Levels, A team of 3-5 members performs an actual demonstration of an agricultural skill including anything in the Agricultural Science and Technology curriculum using effective public speaking and communication methods.
Public Relations Team:  A team of between two and four FFA members develops and presents a 5-8 minute program to inform an adult group regarding the Texas FFA and what it represents.  The presentation is developed assuming that the adult group has no knowledge of the FFA.  Team members are asked questions in response to their program following the presentation.
Ag Issues Team:  A team of 3 to 7 students research and analyze a current agricultural issue, creat a portfolio and also develop and deliver a presentation that stresses both pros and cons of their selected agricultural issue.  At the event competition, members use verbal skills and presentation abilities to defend their findings and answer judges' questions.

Radio Team: 
A team of 3 members presents an informative radio program covering one or more agricultural subjects that is current in nature and local in content.  The contest assumes that the chapter has a regularly scheduled non-commercial radio program once each month over a local station.

Creed Speaking:  Junior and Senior Levels, A member presents the FFA Creed from memory and answers questions about its meaning and purpose.  This event is just one way to boost self-confidence, earn recognition, and develop powerful, organized and professional communication skills. 

Job Interview:  At the competition, each member submits their resume, completes a job application for an agricultural position on site and participates in an interview via telephone, in person one-on-one and with a panel of possible employers.

Chapter Conducting Team:  Junior and Senior Levels, A team of 5-7 members holds a mock meeting where they must demonstrate knowledge of parliamentary procedure and answer questions at the end regarding parliamentary law and FFA officer duties.
