Agricultural Communications

In the National FFA Agricultural Communications Career Development Event, participants attend a simulated news conference and use the information gathered to complete individual practicums in news story writing, press release writing, radio broadcasting, web design and graphic design. Prior to the event, students compile communication project proposals related to innovative agricultural practices, management techniques and marketing tools. Each team then creates and delivers a 15-minute presentation based on their proposal. Members also compete in an editing exercise and a general communications quiz.
