CANYON — Wellington High School senior Kenna Darrow narrowly missed the opportunity to advance to the Texas State FFA LDE event when she took 4th place at the area competition according to Drew Taylor, Wellington FFA advisor. For the FFA competitions, students are not split into groups according to the size of the school so it makes advancing to the next round quite a challenge explained Taylor.
FFA members from all across the Panhandle competed at the Area 1 LDE (Leadership Development Event) contest on Nov. 19 and Nov. 21 on the campus of West Texas A&M University. Results of this event are listed in the photo cutlines.
Students qualified for the area contest by placing in the top three at the Greenbelt FFA District LDE Contest in Clarendon held Nov. 16. Results of this contest are as follows:

Leadership Development Events focus on creating situations for FFA 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.
