A total of six teams or individuals from A&M Consolidated and College Station High School FFA chapters recently placed first or second at the District 1 Leadership Development Event (LDE) contest to advance to area.

Teams or individuals in LDE events must qualify for the area tournament by placing in the top two at their respective district meet.  Those advancing to Area will complete on Saturday, November 23 at East View High School in Georgetown, Texas.  

The top two teams in each category from the 10 area contests across the state advance to compete in State FFA LDE Contest in Huntsville.


Leadership Development Events focus on creating situations for members to demonstrate their abilities in public speaking, decision making, communication and their knowledge of agriculture and the FFA organization. Team and individual events are used to reinforce what is taught in agricultural science classrooms.
