Abstract

By allowing students to participate in the FFA Contests and on Judging Teams, educators are providing their students an opportunity to enhance their leadership abilities, as well as public speaking skills. Contests can be an important part of agricultural education in classroom instruction when it is included as part of the curriculum. The best way to evaluate contests and find how they affected the participants lives, is to survey the winners of the contests. This study sought to evaluate the winners of state livestock judging teams.
