This is an event for Greenhands, first year members, to learn about FFA and get fired up for the years to come! Greenhand Fire-up was held at Washington High School in October 2016. Greenhands have the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of FFA while meeting life long friends.
Greenhand Fire Up
Our members have the option to judge soil, livestock and horses. This gives each member an opportunity to show off their skills. These skills CDES allow FFA members to try out what they learned in the classroom in a real life setting. Students gain skills and learn ways to defend their reasoning's on why they placed the class the way they did.
