On June 8, four Roland-Story agriculture education students and FFA members competed in the State FFA Agronomy Contest that was hosted by the Agronomy Department at Iowa State University.


The Roland-Story team of Hassan Younes, Brendan Taylor, Blake Lebeck and Joe Hovick finished in 21st place and earned a Silver rating.


While at the contest, the participants completed a general knowledge exam, judged crops (alfalfa hay, corn, oats, soybeans), identified plants and seeds, and worked in a collaborative team activity.
