The Allen High School FFA Farm Business Management Team recently placed third in the state Farm Business Management Career Development Event in Huntsville.
Team members are Martin Anaya, Gage Linville, Gillian Hilton, Sydney Morris and Elliot White.
The Farm Business Management competition is designed to measure students’ ability to build overall management skills and apply economic principles to agriculture and agribusiness. At the competition, members complete a written concept exam and solve farm financial analysis problems.
Career Development Events (CDEs) build on what is learned in agricultural classes and encourage members to put their knowledge into practice. More than 15,550 students began the statewide tournament in 28 different events which reflect classroom instruction in technical, leadership, interpersonal and teamwork skills.
The Allen FFA Veterinary Science team also competed in their respective state contest.
