LDE Information

Leadership Development Events focus on creating situations for members to demonstrate their abilities in public speaking, decision making, communication and their knowledge of agriculture and the FFA organization. Team and individual events are used to reinforce what is taught in agricultural science classrooms.

Students will have the opportunity to compete in the following events: 

Agriculture Advocacy :

This contest will be designed to inform the general public and consumers about the importance and value of the agriculture industry and how agriculture impacts human lives. Agricultural Advocacy teams will be made up of 3-5 members from the same chapter.

 - To promote the agriculture industry on all levels, from local to the state level.
 - To educate the consumer and general public about the importance and value of the agriculture industry.
 - To promote the principles of agriculture such as: biotechnology, soil stewardship, resource management, economic and environmental benefits as well as the humane principles of sound livestock production and management.
 - To prepare students to promote agriculture in a professional and effective manner through essential communication and presentation skills.
 - Teams will consist of three to five members from the same local chapter.  Eligible students must meet LDE eligibility requirements outlined in the LDE general rules.

Public Relations: 

A team of between two and four FFA members develops and presents a 5-8 minute program to inform a specified target audience regarding the Texas FFA and what it represents. The presentation is developed assuming that the target audience has no knowledge of the FFA.  Team members are asked questions in response to their program following the presentation. 2021's target audience is Service Organizations. 

FFA Broadcasting: 

A team of 3 members presents an informative radio program covering one or more agricultural subjects that is current in nature and local in content. The contest assumes that the chapter has a regularly scheduled non-commercial radio program once each month over a local station.

Greenhand Creed Speaking:

A member presents the FFA Creed from memory and answers questions about its meaning and purpose. This event is just one way to boost self-confidence, earn recognition, and develop powerful, organized and professional communication skills.

There are both Greenhand and senior levels for this event.

Job Interview:

At the competition, each member submits their resume, completes a job application for an agricultural position on site and participates in an interview via telephone, in person one-on-one and with a panel of possible employers.
