ROCHELLE—On April 3, Kara Tomas, of the Rochelle FFA Chapter, competed at the District I public speaking CDE (Career Development Event) at Geneseo High School in Geneseo, Illinois. Tomas earned the opportunity to compete at the district event after placing first at the section event in January.

In order to compete in this contest members are to recite the five paragraph FFA Creed from memory and be able to answer a series of questions about the Creed. Placing in the top two at district competition allows Kara to advance to the state competition held in May.

The National FFA Organization is dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
