A-C FFA competes in Massachusetts

Four Amanda-Clearcreek FFA members recently traveled to Massachusetts to represent Ohio at the Eastern regional Environmental and Natural Resources contest. The contest was held at the Eastern States Expositional, also known as The Big E, and the members who represented Ohio were Adrian Wymer, Josh Metzon, Kayla Luft, and Josie Montoney. These members earned the opportunity to compete in this contest after placing second in the state contest last spring. After weeks of preparation, the team came home with a respectable fourth place out of the 18 potential teams. And not only did the Amanda-Clearcreek team place fourth, but Ohio took home the sweepstakes after winning more contests than any other state. At the actual contest, competitors were required to know a wide variety of subjects, including animal and plant identification, waste management practices, how to determine water quality, how to write a letter to the editor, and how to analyze a scenario dealing with the environment and find the best possible resolution. This is the first time Amanda-Clearcreek has sent members to The Big E since 2010, so this was an exciting opportunity for not only these members, but for the community as a whole.
