College of the Ozarks will be hosting an FFA contest workshop on Saturday, March 2. The workshop is a mock agricultural contest to show FFA contest participants how real contests work. MHS FFA members who plan to compete in contests this spring will be going, as will FFA members from all over the area.
“You get to meet a lot of new people,” sophomore Christie Bannister said of the event.
The workshop is set up exactly like a real contest, and it is a help to those who are new to contest events.
“The workshop is a good learning experience,” senior Taylor Wehmeyer said.
The mock contests will include livestock events, food events and horticultural events. Some contests may have written tests as well.
“We have some competent and intelligent people,” adviser Stan Coday said, “and I think that we will have a very successful turnout.
But the workshop is also a time for fun and making memories.
“The workshop is absolutely bodacious,” Bannister said.
