Silex, Mo. - McKenna Claborn of the Silex FFA Chapter places second in the creed speaking leadership development event at the 94th Missouri FFA Convention. Sixteen students from six districts were selected to compete at the state level.
The Silex FFA advisors are Sean O’Brien and Lindsey Lasater.
The competition requires contestants to recite the FFA Creed. Speakers then answer a series of questions based on their interpretation of the creed. A panel of judges determines each participant’s score. Participating FFA members gain self-confidence, sharpen their ability to think quickly and hone presentation skills.
