FFA Creed Contest
On Tuesday March 1st, Kaylyn Branen (Left) and Julie Branen (right) participated in a creed contest hosted by the Collinsville FFA Alumni. Participants recite the FFA creed written by E.M. Tiffany in 1928. Then a panel of judges will ask questions to show their knowledge and understanding of the creed. Judges will then grade participants on quality, stage presence, appearance and general effect.They competed in a field of 29 FFA members from across the state. Kaylyn Branen placed third overall in the advanced creed speaking division. It was a great experience as they both prepare for the upcoming speech season that starts later on in March and April. --Kaylyn Branen 3/6/2016
