On Dec. 21, 2019, the Felicity Franklin FFA Advanced Parliamentary
Procedure Team traveled to Columbus to compete in the state competition. The team competed previously in sub-district and district contests, coming in first place at both.
Parliamentary Procedure is a competition in which FFA members perform a
twelve minute meeting demonstrating Parliamentary Law in the setting of an FFA meeting. In the meeting, six FFA members set up and execute a meeting overseen by a chairman with a secretary keeping minutes. The members must debate on motions while correctly using rules of parliamentary procedure.
The members worked very hard and have practiced for weeks as a team
preparing for the contest. The members competing were Alisha Boone, Luke
Jennings, Emily Hardewig, Carly McClure, Kyra Davidson and Audrey Pinger.
The team also had three alternate members Landen Tull, Emma Robertson and Raven Schnarrenberg. The team competed in a first round of competition and judging, and moved on to finals, coming in first place. The team will represent Ohio in the national level competition next October.
