What's awesome about FFA?
It lets students take what they learn in the classroom setting and APPLY it! Members also get to work on their leadership, communication, and career development skills which will help them succeed either at college or in the workforce. It is also great that ANYONE that has an interest in agriculture can be in FFA, not just farm kids.
All of them! But if she had to pick one, it would obviously be horse judging.
