South Dakota FFA champions named in leadership development events

South Dakota FFA’s annual state leadership development events continued this year in a new format, despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

South Dakota FFA members from across the state traded an in-person state leadership development event, in Pierre, for virtual events throughout December and January. Members qualified through district competitions, advancing the top two teams and top three individuals from each of the seven FFA districts in South Dakota. Despite the changes, students still had the opportunity to interact with agriculture industry leaders, through our SD FFA Star Partners, with a “Career Carnival in a Box.”
