Wasco FFA chapter hosted both job interview and prepared public speaking competitions on Jan. 22 for the South Valley Section.
The FFA Job Interview Event is designed to help FFA members learn, practice and display skills that are necessary for them to find employment in the agricultural business. Prepared public speaking participants were given the task of writing and delivering a 6-8-minute speech on a relevant agriculture-related topic. These members did research on the topic of interest before delivering their speech.
After the initial round of the competitions was over, Wasco FFA provided lunch for guests and members. A short time period after the lunch interval, competing finalist members were announced and escorted to compete for one last round.
After judges were done with deciding placings and scorings, they arrived at the cafeteria. Placings then were announced and the cafeteria was overflowing with applause.
Three members from Wasco FFA placed. Those members were Jalie Grundt who earned 3rd place for Prepared Public Speaking, Henry Marin Acosta who received 1st place for Job Interview and Dayana Limon Santiago who obtained 3rd place for Job Interview. Grundt, Marin Acosta and Limon Santiago will be now moving on to regionals.
There were 30 members who competed in the competition and six out of those 30 were from Wasco FFA.
