FFA Environmental and Natural Resources team to compete nationally at career development event
"FFA members participating in this event develop written and oral communication skills through evaluating and presenting global environmental issues," said Melissa Dunkel, Career Development Event education specialist.
Environmental and Natural Resources is one of 25 national CDE's, covering job skills in everything from communications to mechanics. This event includes individual and team activities where participants complete interviews concerning global and national issues, complete writing exercises and locate strategic points using global positioning systems. Members also complete soil tests, evaluate soil profiles, as well as conduct air and water analysis. CDE's help students develop the abilities to think critically, communicate clearly and perform effectively in a competitive job market.
