State Career Development Events
Several FFA members have been working hard over the past three months to compete at the Idaho FFA State Career Development Events in Moscow, ID this June. Gretchen Hansten started the event on Tuesday's opening ceremonies and KayLee Day sang in the National Anthem!
The Dairy Foods team rocked the state CDE's placing 1st and will be representing the Idaho FFA Association at the National FFA Dairy Foods Contest in Indianapolis this fall. Team members Annabelle Day, Kaylee Day, Alyssa Hansten and Cody Jackson evaluated milk defects, identified cheese, determined fat content of milk, differentiated between dairy and non-dairy products, and took a written exam on the dairy foods industry. Annebelle Day placed 1st high individual with a score of 13 (low score wins the contest), KayLee Day placed 4th with a score of 18, Alyssa Hansten 7th with a score of 23, and Cody Jackson placed 14th with a score of 31. The team has a lot cut out for them over the next few months, they will have to raise approximately $8,000 to go to Nationals and study new areas of the national contest.
Placing among the top in the state was the Forestry team who tied for 5th place. Team Members individual placings include Kaitlin Mirkin 6th, Annabelle Day 19 th, Alyssa Hansten 23rd and Maddie Johnson 36th. For the first time the Jerome FFA Ag Mechanics team broke through the top ten placing 7th in the state contest. Representing Jerome in welding was Skyelir Scarrow, tool identification and electrical was Cody Jackson, and in plastic pipe plumbing and small gas engines was Kaylee Day.

Although Gretchen Hansten didn't get the opportunity to participate in the contests she represented her chapter well by hosting the State CDE's as State FFA President. She presided over the Opening Ceremonies and Awards assembly as well as helping at all of the CDE's.
Congratulations to all of the students who participated in State CDE's and way to represent your chapter!!!
