The Elmwood FFA has recently experienced success on the state level in two different areas.
Junior Chelsie Schmitz recently competed and finished in first place for her division in the State Job Interview Career Development Event.
In order for her to compete at this level, she had to first earn the right to do so by winning the district competition. In her state contest she had to submit a cover letter, resume, complete a job application, go through a 15-minute interview, and compose a follow-up letter.
Schmitz will now compete against Ohio's other four division winners to see who represents Ohio in the national competition.
Also experiencing success was the team of Casey Heller and Jon Shinew. They competed in the Agricultural and Industrial Diagnostics CDE (formerly known as tractor troubleshooting) where they placed fifth. In their competition they had to locate and fix two separate "bugs" on five different tractors.
The problems could relate to engines, hydraulics, electrical, or mechanical functions. Because of their ranking they each earned a $4,000 scholarship to the University of Northwest Ohio in Lima, which was the sponsor of the event.
