On Jan. 30, 10 Southern Door FFA members traveled to Green Bay Southwest High School to compete in the District 25 FFA Speaking Contests.

Junior Ashley Wery placed third in the job interview contest. The Parliamentary Procedure contest is for a team of five to seven FFA members where they demonstrate how to run a meeting properly by following the rules of parliamentary law. This year’s parliamentary procedure team, consisting of Morgan Davis, Morgan Geary, Theresa Letter, Alexis Neuville, Ashley Wery and Austin Wery, placed first at the district contest. Middle school students Taylor Dexheimer, Gracie Englebert, Anna LeBrun and Jennifer Vandertie won the district’s Middle School Quiz Bowl Contest.

Both the quiz bowl team and the parliamentary procedure team qualified for the sectional level. The Section 9 FFA speaking contests will be held March 26 at Reedsville High School.
