This is one of the FFA’s most challenging Career Development Events that takes place over two days of competition. In order to be able to compete at the national level a team had to win their respective state competition. There were 33 teams that competed at this year’s national contest making our 8th place finish very impressive.
The contest consists of a 10 page written media plan proposal with accompanying media materials, a fifteen-minute power point presentation delivered by the group, an editing exercise using the proper AP style editing marks and a written test on journalism knowledge. In addition, each member also has to complete their own individual practicum exercise consisting of the following; news writing, opinion writing, web page design and a promotional video.- Advertisement -
