Four Roland-Story FFA members recently participated in the 2018 State FFA Convention and Contests in Ames in the Agriculture Sales Competition.

Chapter members who competed were Max Halstead, Mitch Shorkey, Matthew Hougland and Zach Taylor. The team earned a ‘bronze’ rating in the competition that was held in the Scheman Building at the Iowa State Center.

In the contest which had over 80 teams competing from around the state, the students had to do a collaborative sales presentation, take a general knowledge exam over sales strategies and do individual sales.

The purposes of the contest were to develop verbal, written, and interactive communication skills and to discuss features and benefits of a product.
