Shullsburg FFA Wins State Agricultural Communications Career Development Event

June 3, 2022 CDE

MADISON, Wis. – The Shullsburg FFA Chapter was named the state winning Agricultural Communications Career Development Event Team. Team members include Ella Paquette, Camden Russell, Hailey Duerst and Faith Burgess. Their advisor is Jennifer Russell. The top individual was Allison Loosen of the Slinger FFA. Her advisor is Katelyn Dei.

Through this contest, participants work as a team of communication consultants to develop a written media plan, present the plan to a panel of judges, and as individuals, apply what they have learned during practicums, a quiz and editing exercise.

Shullsburg will now represent Wisconsin FFA in competition at the National FFA Career Development Events to be held in October in Indianapolis, Indiana during the 95th National FFA Convention. The Agricultural Communications CDE is sponsored at the state level by United Cooperative. The National sponsors are OsbornBarr and Monsanto.

The Agricultural Communications Career Development Events help students prepare for careers in journalism, radio and TV broadcast, web design, marketing and more. All CDEs engage students in developing their communication, decision-making and teamwork skills to promote future career success.
