The Platteville FFA Chapter was named the state winning Food Science & Technology Career Development Event Team. Team members include Andrew Theisen, Ridley O’meara, Brendan Millard and Ana Weiderholt. Their advisor is Sam Pinchart. Callie Speltz from the Cochrane – Fountain City FFA was the top individual. Her advisor is Deanna Wiersgalla.
The Food Science & Technology Career Development Event requires students to have an in-depth understanding of food product development, food presentation, and food safety issues. Participants also use their sensory skills to solve problems and make sound decisions.
Platteville 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 Food Science & Technology Career Development Event is sponsored on the state level by the Brakebush Brothers Inc. The national sponsors are Bunge, Hormel Foods, Kerry and U.S. Poultry & Egg Association.
By exposing students to issues in food science and technology, students gain experience that prepares them for traditional and non-traditional careers. All Career Development Events engage students in developing their communication, decision-making, and teamwork skills to promote future career success.
