Allen Wins State FFA Creed Speaking Contest

June 14, 2022 LDE

Eric Allen of the Denmark FFA Chapter was selected as the state winner of the FFA Creed Speaking Contest. The Creed Speaking Contest was held at the 93rd State Convention of the Wisconsin Association of FFA in Madison, Wis. Allen’s advisors are Mary Handrich and Marty Nowak.

The FFA Creed Speaking Contest is designed for 7th to 9th grade FFA members to develop their leadership and communication skills. Contestants recite the FFA Creed, and answer questions based on the Creed’s content and meaning. To qualify for the state finals, students must compete in several other contests including district contest, sectional contest, and finally the state semi-finals in Madison. E.M. Tiffany, professor of Agricultural Education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, wrote the FFA Creed in 1930. It is five paragraphs in length.

Allen will represent Wisconsin at the 95th National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, Ind. this October. The national winner will be selected from a group of state finalists and will receive a plaque and additional scholarship money. 

The other finalists were:

 2nd Place: Mya Stanton, Cochrane-Fountain City

3rd Place: Logan Harbough, Clintonville

4th Place: Annie Robinson, Mineral Point

The State FFA Creed Speaking Contest is sponsored at the state level by the Elkhorn FFA Alumni. The National Creed Speaking Contest is sponsored by Kubota Tractor Corporation.
