MEDIA ALERT - River View High School Hosts Lower Columbia Basin FFA Jamboree (Photo) - 02/22/18

Kennewick, WA - Twelve area FFA Chapters will compete in various Career Development Events (CDE) or Leadership Development Events (LDE) at the Lower Columbia Basin FFA Jamboree tomorrow, February 23. Finley School District is proud to host the Jamboree at River View High School from 8:30 AM to 2 PM. Participating FFA Chapters for 2018 include Finley, Columbia Burbank, Pasco, Kiona-Benton, Connell, Touchet, New Horizons, Chiawana, Kamiakin, Kennewick, Kahlotus, and Richland. The combined chapters will bring over 150 FFA members to the competition in Finley.

The annual Jamboree helps members prepare for the Washington State FFA Convention scheduled to take place in May at Pullman. At the state convention, members participate against other chapters from our state to bid for the top team or individual in that CDE/LDE and a chance to travel back to the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana.

CDE/LDE events that FFA Members are competing in include: Tractor Driving, Horse Evaluation (judging), Food Science, Agricultural Mechanics, Best Informed Greenhands, Creed Speaking, Agricultural Sales, Public Speaking, Veterinary Science & Technology, Employment Skills, Milk & Quality Products, Floriculture, Horse Judging, Conduct of Chapter, Tractor Driving, and Extemporaneous public speaking. Career Development Events help members develop skills and abilities in certain areas that could lead to possible careers throughout the agricultural industry. Over 40 volunteers from the local area will show up to help the FFA members with their CDE/LDEs. Local community support for the members include: Pepsi, Franklin County Farm Bureau, RDO, and Bleyhl's.

The 2018 LCB Jamboree begins at 8:30 AM at River View High School, located at 36509 S Lemon Dr in Kennewick, WA. For more information, contact Finley FFA Advisor Jennifer Yochum at 509-586-7279.
