COLUMBIA, Mo., April 19, 2024 – The California FFA Chapter won the agricultural sales career development event at the 96th Missouri FFA Convention. There were 24 teams in the competition.

Contestants complete an individual sales presentation and team sales situation for an agricultural product. Competitors also are asked to demonstrate their ability to relate to customers, prospect for customers and carry out promotions. These students can successfully apply classroom learning to real-life situations.

Sponsored by Pioneer Seeds, this CDE is one way the FFA prepares student members for career success. CDEs engage student learning and make a real connection to lifetime goals.

The Missouri FFA has 26,830 members representing 362 chapters. The national organization has more than 945,000 members representing 9,163 chapters in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
