Team and individual events are used to reinforce what is taught in agricultural science classrooms.

  • Skills (Greenhand & Senior)
  • Job Interview
  • Quiz (Greenhand & Senior)
  • FFA Broadcasting (Radio)

There are lots of opportunities for students to compete in LDE contests. The potential is endless! Sign-up sheets are in the Ag classroom. This is the year of YES! You never know where the year will take you, unless you just say yes!

Northeast Texas Livestock Association Show - February 27-29, 2020

Quality Counts

**REMINDER** If you are going to show a livestock project at any major show or NETLA, you must have an up-to-date Quality Counts number PRIOR to turning in entries and/or tag-in.

Exhibitors only need to be verified once as a Junior (grades 3-5), once as an Intermediate (grades 6-8), and once as a Senior (grades 9-12).

If your child moved up a division, they will need to renew their QC number. For more info, see Mrs. Martin. Don't wait until the last minute to complete this.
