I've exchanged the blue corduroy jacket for a business suit. This year I had the privilege to be one of the judges for my favorite contest of all times... Job Interview. It sure did bring back memories of preparing for the contest, predicting what the judges were going to ask and making sure I knew the in's and out's of the job I was "applying" for.
For only being in high school, the contestants had outstanding resumes, were very knowledgeable about the agriculture industry and their career choice. I could have talked to some of them for hours about what they want to be when the "grow up" and their college plans. I got excited just listening to their ambitious plans and recalling what a exciting age this is in a person's life.
|"Unlock the Legacy" was the theme for this year's convention. |
When is your state convention?
How do you volunteer your time for youth?
