Creed Question:

"How can citizens of the United States benefit from the message of the FFA Creed in 2020?"

We've amended the contest format due to the number of states represented.

Round 1

Contestants competed against other people from their state. One winner was selected from each state. 

Round 2

We had 15 total states represented, which has forced us to amend the contest format. To ensure the best speakers move forward, speakers will be randomly assigned to flights of 4 (one of 3) and compete against the other three in their flight. One speaker will move on from each flight.

Round 3

The winners from each flight will compete as finalists. From these four contestants the judges will select a 1st-4th place.
