From press reports
July 8th through the 11th the Choctaw County High School FFA Chapter attended Summer Leadership Camp (SLC).
While there, five members of the chapter: Johnny Douglas, Andy Robison, Samantha Makamson, Macie Cook, and Philip Evans competed in the Cooperative Education competition.
This competition began at State Convention earlier in the summer; the competitors took a 50 question knowledge test and the top 18 scores advanced to compete at SLC. When competing at SLC, the 18 competitors learned what a cooperative (coop) is and how it is conducted. Members also got a chance to run their own coop.
At the end of the week all the competitors took another test and the top two scores were awarded with an all-expense paid trip to Washington Leadership Conference in Washington D.C. the following summer.
The two winners were both members from the Choctaw County High School FFA Chapter: Johnny Douglas and Andy Robison.
This competition was a great experience and a great opportunity to meet new people for the Choctaw County High School FFA Chapter members and they plan to compete again next year.
