Yelm FFA Team placed 2nd in National Event

I was visiting my hometown of Louisville, KY. in late October and read the National FFA Agricultural Sales Career Development Event (CDE) would be hosted there, joined by a Yelm-participating FFA team.
Imagine my surprise when I returned here to read Yelm’s FFA was a “Top 10 team” winner:

The National FFA Organization National Event Winners – Agricultural Sales 2013
“The top ten individuals and the national winning team members received cash awards to recognize their success in the event.”

“The National FFA Agricultural Sales CDE is a competitive event that allows students to apply classroom knowledge to real-life situations. The event includes actual sales presentations, a written exam, team sales situation, an individual practical situation focusing on customer relations, customer service, or prospecting for customers. Each team competed at local and state levels for the privilege of representing their state at the National FFA Convention & Expo.

The event, held at the Marriott Hotel in Louisville, Ky., is one of many educational activities at the National FFA Convention & Expo in which FFA members practice the lessons taught in agricultural education classes”
