The State Forestry compeition was held at Purdue University over the weekend and our MCHS FFA team placed 10th in the state!
Team members included: Brady McDole, James Weir, Tyson Torrance, and Maranda Elswick.
Mrs. Briggs, FFA Chapter Advisor, shared the competition guidelines
. As with all FFA competitions, the depth and scope of knowledge required of these students is crazy, ridiculous!
The objectives of the 4-H/FFA Ag. Forestry event for youth are:
1. To develop leadership skills, to work as a team, and to practice good study habits.
2. To acquire information about forest ecosystems and forestry skills used in forest management and the utilization of forest products.
3. To appreciate and manage wisely Indiana's forest resources.
With the recent devasting wildfires, regionally and nationally, the work these students are doing today will help to restore and preserve the natural resources in areas effected.
