Region 2 FFA Members Advance to State FFA Discussion Meet

Molly Lindgren from the Staples/Motley FFA Chapter and Alexis Krebs from the Upsala FFA Chapter took home top honors from the Region 2 FFA Discussion Meet held February 9. Both will advance to the state contest in April in conjunction with the Minnesota State FFA Convention. This contest is sponsored by Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation’s Young Farmers and Ranchers Committee and the Minnesota Farm Bureau Foundation.

Other participants included Charlotte Langanski and Austin Tatter from the Grand Rapids FFA Chapter, Egon Lake from the Menahga FFA Chapter and Nolan Juelson from the Blackduck FFA Chapter. Cass, Wadena, Crow Wing and Todd County Farm Bureaus assisted with the Discussion Meet. 

The Discussion Meet competition encourages participants to have a conversation about current agriculture topics. The discussion simulates a committee meeting with the goal of finding a solution. Each FFA region in Minnesota can send two participants to the state contest, where the top two winners will receive a scholarship to the FFA Washington Leadership Conference or to further their education.
