Lee Wins State FFA Discussion Meet

June 13, 2023 LDE

 Maria Lee of the Random Lake FFA Chapter was named the state winner of the FFA Discussion Meet Contest. The Discussion Meet Contest was held at the 94th State Convention of the Wisconsin Association of FFA in Madison, Wisconsin. Lee’s advisor is Ms. Whitney Rathke.

The Discussion Meet Contest tests the abilities of FFA members in cooperatively discussing agricultural issues, exchanging ideas and information, and finding solutions to issues or problems. Modeled after the Farm Bureau Discussion Meet Contest, contestants give a 30-second opening statement, participate in 15-minutes of discussion and finish with a one-minute closing statement. 

 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.

The other finalists were:

2nd Place: Allison Loosen, Slinger

3rd Place: Paige Billig, Marshall

4th Place: Olivia Horsfall, Fennimore
