    Megan Smith of the Southside High School Future Farmers of America chapter participated in North Carolina's FFA Horse Evaluation Career Development Event on Apr. 16 in Martin County. Smith was advised by SHS FFA advisor Brittany Mishler.

    "Participation in this event helps FFA members learn how to carefully select stock, a valuable career skill for working with producers," said Jason Davis, State FFA coordinator.

    During the event, students demonstrate their ability to reason and communicate about equine selection, management and production. Participants are responsible for evaluating classes of horses based on performance and halter. They then give reasons for their selections.

    The highest scoring team in the State event is eligible to compete at the National FFA Convention in October. The top three teams and the highest scoring individual will be announced during the 83rd North Carolina FFA State Convention in Raleigh on June 21-23.

    This event is one of 42 different career development events offered to North Carolina FFA members on the State level. The North Carolina FFA Foundation sponsors the State Horse Evaluation Career Development Event.

    The North Carolina FFA is a youth organization of 16,666 student members preparing for careers in the science, business and technology of agriculture, with 230 local chapters across the state. Visit www.ncffa.org for more information.
