Staff Report

On October 19-22, 18 members of the Milford FFA Chapter traveled to Indianapolis, IN, joining about 55,000 other FFA members, advisors, and sponsors from across the country in attendance at the 84th National FFA Convention. They competed either individually or on a team in a Career Development Event.  Each Milford FFA student earned a trip to Nationals by winning at the state level at either the Delaware FFA State Convention last March or at the Delaware State Fair in July.  There are over 523,000 FFA members nationwide and each Milford FFA member competed against FFA members from all 50 states.

The National FFA Career Development Events (CDE) are competitions that require members to think critically, communicate clearly, and perform tasks in the field of agriculture.  At the National FFA Convention, members receive a gold, silver or bronze ranking (both individually and as a team) based on their performance. The livestock judging team consisted of Casidhe Bruns (silver individually), Kelly Twigg (silver), Wendy Hill (bronze), and Joycelynn Johnson (bronze) received a bronze team ranking.  The poultry judging team was made up of Nancy Wilson (silver), Savana Decarlo (silver), Dana Dittoe (silver), and Morgan Kersey (bronze) received a silver team ranking.  The floriculture team consisted of Trevor Maloney (gold), Morgan Anton (silver), Bree Wilkins (silver), and Katelyn Lewis (silver) received a silver team ranking.  Bryce Kenton and Lyndsey Senn competed in agriscience Fair and received 4th place/22 and a gold ranking.  In addition, Bryce competed in extemporaneous speaking and Lyndsey Senn competed in prepared public speaking, both receiving a bronze ranking.  Finally, Brittany Webb competed in job interview CDE and placed 5th in the nation and received a gold ranking.

In addition to the career development events achievements, there were two other awards that reflect Milford FFA Chapter’s success.  Samantha Steele and Amanda Stevenson received their American Degree, the highest degree available to an FFA member.  Less than 1% of members received such an award.  In addition, National FFA Organization recognizes outstanding FFA chapters from each state.  For the fifith year in a row, Milford FFA Chapter received a 3-star National Chapter Award, the highest award given by the organization.  Overall, the Milford FFA Chapter did an outstanding job at the 83rd National FFA Convention.  The Milford FFA advisors, Judith Bruns, Scott Haldeman, Jack Newark, and Chris Stahl are very proud of the accomplishments of these elite FFA members.
