This is the image for the news article titled Uintah FFA celebrates success at state, nationalsThe 93rd National FFA Convention & Expo was held virtually this week and Uintah FFA was well represented.

"We had one national finalist in what are called Proficiency Awards," Uintah FFA advisor David Wilson said. "Alexanndria Veibell was a national finalist, one of the top four in the nation in the Diversified Horticulture Placement Area."

Uintah FFA won three career development events (CDEs) and two leadership development events (LDEs) at the state contests last spring, Wilson said. State contests were also conducted virtually. The National FFA Convention did not host national CDEs or LDEs this year, so those students did not get to compete nationally.

The Uintah FFA teams and student names who won first place at state were:
Career Development Events:

Nursery/Landscape – Abe Curtis, Bradley Wilson, Alayna Murray, and Jimmy McGuire (Curtis was first high individual in the state, Murray was second and McGuire was third.)

Milk Quality Evaluation – Alexanndria Veibell, Denim Lister, Sage Rothlisberger, and Devony Cook (Lister was first high individual in the state and Veibell was second.)

Livestock Evaluation – Cooper Jackson, Hadlee Owens, Denim Lister, and Tanner Birchell (Lister was first high individual in the state, and Owens second.)

Leadership Development Events:

Prepared Public Speaking – Scotlyn Williams took first place in Utah

Conduct of Chapter Meetings – Uintah was the first-place team with Stetson Rothlisberger, Gavin Cook, Grady Jackson, Dacin Turney, Aysia Massey, Aysha Slaugh, Houston Harrison, and Davin Roberts.
