Throughout the school year, Red Lion’s FFA participates in numerous competitions. Some of the earliest of these competitions occur at the York Fair, which was held in early September.
The group has had great success thus far, and it is thanks in part to their preparation. Regardless of the category of their event, students spend hours researching, collecting, and practicing after school to make sure that they are ready for their competitions.
Senior Allison Macklin earned first place in the Senior Division of the Dairy Skills Contest, which is made up of juniors and seniors. For the Junior Division, made up of freshmen and sophomores, Kaylee Van Hovel took third place, Casidee Crowl took fourth, and Leah Taylor took fifth place. Through these placings, their strength was shown in the dairy and livestock judging, both of which are favorites of many students.
