Earlier this month, Northwestern Oklahoma State University’s Agriculture program played host to a two-day Future Farmers of America (FFA) Interscholastics competition. All Northwest District FFA chapters were invited to compete in the Quiz Bowl Contest. All Oklahoma FFA students were invited to compete in Career Development Event (CDE) contests and a speech contest.
“The interscholastics competition on campus went very well,” Mindi Clark, assistant professor of agriculture, said. “We had students participating from several schools across northwest Oklahoma. This is a contest we hold each year, and it brings a large amount of prospective students to campus, so we are glad for that; therefore, we plan to hold the contests again next year. We rely on our agricultural students to assist with the contests, and it not only exposes them to the organization required of hosting a large event, but it will also help them as future teachers in preparing their students to compete at contests like this one.”
The Northwestern students who helped with the various competitions were: Clayton Davison, Guthrie freshman; Hayli Miller, Norman junior; Betty Jo Hubert, Norman freshman; Trent Waugh, Laverne freshman; Tyler Blag, Talihina senior; Colton Foote, Alva freshman; Emilee Hughes, Garber freshman; Nicholas Cosby, Strafford junior; Montana McCullough, Kiowa, Kan., junior; Ashlye Pool, Fayetteville, Ark., sophomore; Scott Batchelder, Orland, Calif., sophomore; Jason Miller, Norman junior; Mack Wood, Olive freshman; Kyle Enis, Elgin senior.
