Last night was our first competition, at district level. We got a gold award and placed 1st! We were all really excited at how it went and are looking forward to our next competition in 2 weeks at regionals!
The way Ag Issues works:
The team must act out a skit showing both sides of an agricultural issue. Our skit's setting was at a county fair, two different vendors set up near each other with different view points on this issue. A senator walks in and asks for their opinions and this begins the discussion. I am acting as a vet, and we have a farmer as well.
This is Michigan Farm Bureau's table. They are against the passage of this bill. (Just FYI, the bill is in the Senate right now and if you want to check it out....it's S-619)
This is "The Food Revolution" booth....which is for the passage of the bill.
This was us getting ready last night....
And our awesome team! I'm on the far left and Abigail is on the far right.
Keep your eyes open for some interesting updates to come on our Ag Issue! :) I might be talking about it every once in a while about it on here.
Have a great evening all!
