Spanish Fork FFA competed at the Area 5 Contests (regionals) this week at Springville High School. Maddy Nielsen did a great job representing in the Creed competition. Jesse Shepherd took home the win in the Prepared Public Speaking event with his speech about conventional versus cage-free chickens. He will move on and compete at the state level in March.  The Agricultural Proficiency Awards honor FFA members who, through supervised agricultural experiences, have developed specialized skills that they can apply toward their future careers. Our chapter was able to have eight winners (which was over half the winners in our area) in different categories who will move on to the state competition in February. Congratulations
