The Warsaw FFA Chapter had 9 members compete in the state Horticulture Career Development Events (CDE) contest. In a typical year, these students would have traveled to West Lafayette, Indiana to complete this contest. This year, the members completed the contest on a virtual platform.
The Horticulture CDE teaches members various skills dealing with horticulture and the landscape industry. Members identified ornamental plants, flowers, indoor houseplant, fruits, vegetables, and nuts. They also took a knowledge exam.
The team of Dakotah Easterday, Cadence Gibson, Lilly Haywood and Breanna Thompson placed 8th. The team of Brittany Duncan, Gentry Hall, Jazmyn Taylor and Thomas Boggs placed 24th. Regann Finch competed in this contest as an individual. There were a total of 43 teams who competed in this state contest. Dakotah Easterday was the top judger for this event! Congratulations to the 9 FFA Chapter members on their success in the state Horticulture contest.
