Recently FFA competed at practice contest in Paris on Wednesday, March 7th. Teams had the opportunity to go to this practice contest if they were involved in Parliamentary Procedure, Knowledge, or speeches. South Shelby placed sixth overall out of 23 teams.
Rhian Beldon who was the second high individual in her Ag Sales contest talked about her contest, “I think we did a great job especially for how little time we were able to practice. I see this team going far and a lot of success in the near future.” When asked what she said she’s going to do to improve she replied, “Practice, practice, practice! The only way to improve is to practice and become knowledgeable about your product.” Almost all contests have the same mentality if teams want to get better they will have to practice.
