For one FFA member, long hours of practice paid off as she competed in the Central Region Floral Design Career Development Event held at Camp John Hope in Fort Valley, Georgia on Thursday, September 27, 2018. Representing Taylor County High School was Kelsie Albritton, competing in the senior division, placing second. Kelsie will move onto the State Floral Design CDE in December, which will be held at ABAC in Tifton, GA.
Georgia Florist Association is the educational sponsor for the competition. Serving as judges this year were industry representatives: Ms. Penny Stapleton (The Daisy Patch in Perry), Mrs. Cindy Greene (Eastman), and Mr. Wesley Hamann (Bonaire).
The FFA Floral Design competition consists of a written exam, identification of floral plant material and equipment as well as completing a hands on skills test in creation of a given floral design. The competition is based on the educational objectives of the Georgia Agriculture Education horticulture curriculum and standard practices in the horticulture industry.
The purpose of the career development event is to connect students with what is taught in the classroom to practices utilized in the floriculture industry. Additionally, the competition promotes academic achievement and competence for students who seek a future in the horticulture industry.
Kelsie Albritton, an 11th grader, is the daughter of Steve and Jaime Albritton of Mauk. Gayla Singletary is the Taylor County High FFA advisor.
This event is one of the many educational activities in which the FFA members apply classroom knowledge to real-life situations. The Georgia FFA Association has the third largest FFA membership in the nation with over 36,500 members. FFA strives to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education.
