Last Friday, while most kids sat in school, three friends and I were busy dominating in the Agricultural Mechanics portion of the Missouri State FFA Convention. The competition is made up of 7 events: Welding, Machinery, Soil and Water, Woodworking and Carpentry, Small Gas Engines, Electricity, and a Written Exam. For each section 20 minutes are given to complete a skill and answer questions. After each skill area is completed you then have an hour to take the written exam which is made up of 100 multiple choice questions.
Out of 45 teams our team came in first place with individual placements of first, sixth, ninth, and tenth.
Congratulations to all COMO FFA winning teams and Good luck at nationals.
