Couch FFA wins second

Thursday, July 11, 2002

Three members of the Couch FFA recently competed in the Agriculture Ag Literacy Contest. They were Leigh Etta Johnson, Jeff Bull and Rachel Burgard. The contest consisted of sending in a written plan and a videotaped presentation of the team teaching an elementary class a lesson on agriculture and its importance. They qualified for state by placing first in the South Central District with their lesson "Agriculture -- All Around, Up and Down" to Mrs. Craig's class at Couch Elementary School. They then made a presentation about their lesson to judges in the state contest held in Jefferson City. For placing second the team received a plaque and $400. The contest was sponsored by the Missouri Department of Agriculture, the Missouri Beef Industry Council, and the Missouri Soybean Merchandising Council.
