FFA goes to Ok­la­homa

The Times (Northeast Benton County) - - SPORTS - JES­SICA MCMA­HON Spe­cial to The TIMES

The Pea Ridge FFA Chap­ter took a field trip to the Arkansas/Ok­la­homa State Fair on Wed­nes­day, Sept. 27. To at­tend the fair, the stu­dents had to have pass­ing grades, at­tend the Ice Cream so­cial, sell a min­i­mum of 10 items in the fall fundraiser, as well as pay their FFA dues.

In to­tal, 41 PRHS stu­dents went to the State Fair.

At the fair, stu­dents started their day by com­pet­ing in a judg­ing com­pe­ti­tion. The stu­dents had the op­tions to judge Live­stock, Poul­try, Dairy Cat­tle or Trac­tor Driv­ing. I the Dairy Cat­tle com­pe­ti­tion, Pea Ridge re­ceived sixth place out of 30th. For Live­stock, Pea Ridge re­ceived sev­enth place out of 51. In Poul­try, they re­ceived 24th out of 25. In Trac­tor Driv­ing, the re­ceived fifth out of 10.

Once the judg­ing com­pe­ti­tion was over, stu­dents parted ways and spent a few hours rid­ing the rides, play­ing the games and, of course, eat­ing the fair food.

All in all, we had a blast at the Arkansas Ok­la­homa State Fair.
