BE SURE TO HAVE YOUR VIDEO YOUTUBE LINK READY TO SUBMIT BEFORE REGISTERING.
"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.
Contestants competed against other people from their state. One winner was selected from each state.
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.
The winners from each flight will compete as finalists. From these four contestants the judges will select a 1st-4th place.
