Marshfield FFA Wins State Forestry Career Development Event

June 12, 2023 CDE

The Marshfield FFA Chapter was named the state winning Forestry Career Development Event Team. Team members include Kelly Mcewen, Alex Heeg, Rayna Ostrander and Allison Heil. Their advisors are Tim Heeg and Mark Zee. Grant Hatfield from the Stanley-Boyd FFA was named the top individual. His advisor is Jordan Donnerbauer.

The Forestry Career Development requires students to demonstrate their skills in diagnosing forest disorders, managing forests and forest inventory, and applying approved silviculture practices.  

Marshfield will now represent Wisconsin FFA in competition at the National FFA Career Development Events to be held in November in Indianapolis, Indiana during the 96th National FFA Convention. The Forestry Career Development Event is sponsored on the state level by the Wisconsin FFA Convention Partners. The National sponsor is John Deere.

This event offers students experience relevant to a career choice in forestry and natural resources. All Career Development Events engage students in developing their communication, decision-making, and teamwork skills to promote future career success.
