The St. Regis FFA (Future Farmers of America) had three teams place in the top 15 at the John Deere Ag Expo in Bozeman. The Expo was held at the Montana State University Campus on Nov. 9-11 and approximately 1,500 FFA members came from around the state.

The Agriculture Communications team placed second out of 12 overall teams. The team was Kylee Thompson, Anna Sanford, Falkenhagen, and Andrew Sanford. Falkenhagen placed fifth and Anna placed first in individual competition.

The Horse Evaluation team placed 18 out of 45 other teams with Ally English, Emma Hill and Chloe Cielke where two members had never competed in the events until this expo. The competitions in Bozeman are practice for the state convention which will be held in the spring.

FFA became a national organization in 1928 and was formed as a way to promote and support agricultural education in middle and high school classrooms. The organization’s stated purpose is “to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.” Including such diverse fields of study as science, technology, business, food, fiber and natural resources industries.

FFA chapters teach students real world applications for their fields of study.
