Ed itor ial

As I sit down to write this editorial, it is 10 minutes

till 7 p.m. What is so significant about this time? It’s simple! The polls close on what will go down in history as one of the most exciting, crazy, ridiculous, negative political campaign season in American history. Even recently at the American Royal in Kansas City, friends of mine from up north wanted to know my thoughts. Here they are! We in agriculture working with ag kids are the solid, positive folks in America. You and I believe in Mother Nature, God and that things will be better tomorrow because we will make it so! So, hang in there friends! We don’t have to make American Great Again because our show ring world is greater than ever! It’s that way because of all of us and the efforts we put in to ensure that kids and agriculture are GREAT!

GRASS BUNDLES OF JOY!

By Annabell Maxwell, Cave Springs FFA Reporter This contest is an excellent way for students Recently the Cave Springs FFA Chapter participated in the Adair County Free Fair exhib- to learn about crops and grasses on a larger scale iting a variety of crops and grass bundles. Due to while working with some of the state’s agriculboth the Oklahoma State Fair and the Tulsa State tural producers. Working with these agronomy displays students have the chance to learn about Fair contests being subject to the pandemic this was an opportunity to exhibit their projects at the various ecosystems and their impacts on the world around them. local level. In turn, students have more opportunities through potential employment and continued education from such program areas. These handson experiences allow students to learn more about both traditional and nontraditional farming practices, while contributing to their supervised agricultural experiences.

Lara Hays, American Degree Recipient.

Hunter Suntken, American Degree Recipient.

Hailey Suntken, chapter president and bronze award recipient in agriscience fair.

By Saige Morgan, Sequoyah FFA Reporter With national convention coming to a close members of the Sequoyah FFA chapter are excited to be recognized virtually for their hard work and accomplishments. While we were not in Indianapolis, three members got to participate in the usual convention activities. The American FFA Degree is FFA’s highest award with less than one percent of its membership meeting the requirements. This degree not only requires determination, but dedication as well. To be eligible to receive this award, FFA Members must complete at least 50 hours of community service, invest and collect $10,000 through their SAE

project, and illustrate exceptional leadership skills. Lara Hays, a Sequoyah FFA alumni, is one of the members receiving her American Degree. Lara now attends Oklahoma State University and is double majoring in Agribusiness and Animal Science with a minor in Legal Studies. Her plans for after graduation are to attend law school and use her knowledge to serve agricultural industries. Hunter Suntken is the second Sequoyah FFA member receiving his American FFA Degree this year. Hunter is the owner and operator of his own small business, Suntken Lawn Care. His future plans include continuing the growth of his busi-

ness and pursuing his desire to start and expand other businesses. Finally, we would like to recognize the Sequoyah FFA chapter president Hailey Suntken for her achievements in the Agriscience fair. Agriscience fair is an opportunity for students to explore the scientific method as it relates to issues surrounding agriculture. Hailey’s project covered xenotransplantation which is the process of harvesting organs from livestock and transplanting them into humans that are suffering from organ failure. She surveyed hundreds of students across Oklahoma FFA as well as citizens of her community to determine the public’s perception of this emerging technology. Once more research was done, Hailey concluded that xenotransplantation is perceived positively if it can solve the current organ shortage. Hailey plans to attend OSU to double major in Agricultural Education and Agricultural Communications. We look forward to more achievements fueled by the example these three outstanding FFA members have set.

By Teagan Charmasson, Shattuck FFA Reporter On Wednesday Sept, 16, Shattuck FFA held their fourth annual Ag Olympics Competition. This fun contest tests Shattuck FFA members’ skills in various ag-related tasks. The event started with teams arriving, taking pictures, and assigning team member roles to the competition activities. First up was the T-post driving competition where teams of six raced against each other, driving three T-posts into the ground as fast as they could. At this year’s competition, the Gray team, led by Clayton Washmon, came out victorious. Next was the stick horse relay, in which teams of four galloped on their

Page 16 - Nov/Dec 2020

horses to a team member that had to be skilled enough to rope a rogue steer. The first team to successfully catch their steer would be named the winner. Emmie Swanson’s yellow team picked a fine header in Anna Knox, who roped her steer first and took the blue ribbon. Next was the tool relay contest in which six players from each team showcased their skills, and competed to see who could hammer, drill, screw, and bolt the fastest. The Orange team won thanks to the quick work of their team members. Following the tool relay were the eating competitions. One girl from each team was assigned to the watermelon eating, while one boy from each team to the hot dog eating

Ag Youth Magazine - Braggin’ on Kids for 33 Years!

contest. Jaylon Cummings from the Green team ate the most hotdogs, and Ashlee Arellano from the Gray team won the watermelon contest. Congrats to this year’s eating champions! Later, the tug-o-war was held over a giant pit of muddy water. Always a fan favorite, this year’s tugo-war was no different. Each group battled it out, tournament style, to see whose team had the overall strength advantage. Clayton Washmon’s Grey team manhandled the competition, and claimed the victory. Last but not least, was the hog calling contest, another favorite of the crowd. The competition was tough, but Keegan Frazier of the Yellow team placed first, which makes him a two-time hog calling champion. This great night of events wrapped up with everyone enjoying burgers, hotdogs, and fellowship. Special thanks to the Manske family for hosting the event, and for supporting our chapter! Congratulations to Shattuck FFA Secretary Clayton Washmon’s Grey Team for winning the most events and being named the overall Champions of this year’s Shattuck FFA Ag Olympics. agyouth.com

TRENTON’S POST Hey Guys! It’s me Trenton. Last time I talked to you it was mid-September. Since then I have shown sheep and goats at Tulsa and the American Royal in Kansas City. The highlights are we had a show even though we had to wear masks. Thank you to Brandy and her crew at Tulsa for letting us show and same to the entire staff at the American Royal. I would rather wear a mask to show and see my friends than not go at all. Now, we are just feeding and working our animals as we have a break for a while. As it is getting colder, make sure you are putting blankets on your animals and keep them warm. Also, pay attention to the water buckets and make sure they don’t freeze over. Now that it is this part of the year, we are going to be jumping into duck season, goose season and deer season. As the cold weather is coming through we should start seeing some birds and I like to see them flying around. I am starting to see some ducks, pigeons, teals and canvasbacks flying around. I am excited for that. But first, we’ll talk about deer hunting. My Papa has some big deer on his deer cam and we are going to hunt them in a couple of weeks. I’m about to enter the deer hunting zone. One of my goals is to shoot a big 12 point buck. The other goal is to harvest a doe that I will donate to Hunters Against Hunger. You can learn more about it at wildlifedepartment.com. Make sure you send me your hunting pictures and I will post mine too. Peace out. Shoot the big ones!

Woodward FFA Chapter Officer Team traveled to the Stride Bank Center in Enid on Tuesday, September 29, 2020 for the annual Northwest Area Chapter Officer Leadership Training (COLT) Conference. FFA Chapters are invited to send their President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Reporter and Sentinel of their chapter officer team to their area conference. The officer training is facilitated by the 2020-2021 Oklahoma State FFA Officer Team and is consistent statewide. The conference design allows chapter officers to learn as well as collaborate. Each year the state officers choose a theme that promotes the take home message for the conference. The theme for this year was “Reduce, Renew, Resolve.” It is no secret that we are navigating a new normal a s we live through the COVID-19 pandemic. These changes have impacted our world tremendously and FFA events are no exception. We are very fortunate to be able to continue participating in FFA events such as COLT Conference. However, things are different as we modify the previous “normal” and agyouth.com

follow new guidelines with hopes of providing a safe environment. The first change increased the number of conference sessions from five to ten. Instead of one conference session per area, there were two (morning and afternoon). This modification was implemented to reduce the number of members in the building and allow for proper social distancing. Along with social distancing, face masks were required for the duration of the conference. Although the conference would be a little different this year, Ella Moffet, Woodward FFA Chapter President, was still optimistic. She said, “It is going to be different than last year but I am so glad we are having it. It is going to be good to see members from across our district and be able to come together and collaborate on ideas that will allow us to move our programs forward despite the circumstances.” Consistent from years past, the conference was well planned and executed. We kicked off the conference with keynote speaker, Kelly Barns, who spoke about conflict. His message was incredibly relevant to

our society today and in general when working with a team. Shortly after the keynote address, officer teams were split into breakout sessions led by state officers. Woodward FFA went with Central Area Vice President, Jacob Nunley and Northeast Area Vice President, Karstyn Cantrell. These breakout sessions focused on the “three R’s” of conflict: Resistance, Resentment, and Revenge. Josiah Heflin, Woodward FFA Chapter Sentinel, said, “Reduce, Renew, Resolve is a great way to handle the “three R’s” of conflict. I look forward to implementing this strategy when working through conflict within our FFA chapter.” The 2020 Northwest Area COLT Conference was a huge success! Woodward FFA Chapter Officers are ecstatic to take what they learned and apply it not only in their officer team but also in the community. Thank you to the Oklahoma FFA Association for making the conference possible and to Woodward Public Schools for providing support that allowed our officer team to attend.

First Place 4-H Team was Oklahoma Union with members Addison Dick, Bradon Kuehn, Daniel Moody and Bodee West.

First Place FFA Team was Stillwater FFA with members Abigail Burton, Lilly Cooper, Brandt Gazaway, Preslee Watley.

FFA and 4-H youth from across Oklahoma demonstrated their knowledge of the commercial cattle industry, Wednesday, Oct. 7, at the Oklahoma State Commercial Cattle Grading Contest in Bristow. AFR/OFU Cooperative sponsored the inaugural event, which boasted approximately 400 individual participants in more than 100 teams. To excel in the contest, participants employed their knowledge of high-quality cattle traits to choose breeding and market animals that would prove profitable in real-life production situations. The contestants ranked animals by structural soundness of replacement heifers, profitability of cull cows, market steer yield potential, and more. Ultimately, contestants were rewarded for their recognition of high-quality cattle—just as a producer would profit from similar selection within their own herd. “The ability to identify the best animals within the herd or in the auction ring is of utmost importance to a successful cattle operation. Developing this skill early in life ensures contestants’ success as future cattle producers,” said AFR/ OFU Cooperative President Scott Blubaugh. “We are proud to sponsor a competition that translates to real-life situations and encourages Oklahoma’s youth to pursue careers in production agriculture.” The contest offered competition opportunity for individuals in three age brackets—4-H, FFA and adult—and three- or four-person 4-H or FFA teams. Awards were presented to the top five individual or team in each bracket.

Operation Christmas Child is a project run by Samaritan’s Purse. Samaritan’s Purse collects items such as hygiene products, school supplies, and fun toys that are packed into shoe boxes. These shoe boxes are then collected and shipped to other countries, so they can be given to children who don’t get Christmas presents. These shoe boxes help to spread the love of God to children who otherwise might never find out about God’s love for them.

By Ashlyn Larman, Mulhall-Orlando FFA Reporter All across the nation, events are being postponed or canceled due to Covid-19, and agricultural events are no exception. The Oklahoma State Fair is an annual event that over 1 million people attend. It has taken place every year since statehood with the exception of 2020 and 1945. After the cancellation of The Oklahoma State Fair in August, one group came together and put on an event for the students of Oklahoma to showcase their FFA and 4-H projects. That event was the EYO Fall Classic held in Duncan, Oklahoma on September 18-20, 2020. The event was hosted by The Oklahoma Youth Expo staff. “Amid the cancellation of the Oklahoma State Fair, our team at the Oklahoma Youth Expo believes it is critical to provide an opportunity for our ag youth exhibitors to have a venue to exhibit their livestock,” said president of Onward Endowment, Tyler Norvell. “Therefore we have launched the EYO, the Exposition for the Youth of Oklahoma Fall Classic. The hard work and dedication our ag youth put towards their livestock projects need to be recognized and rewarded.” We are all very grateful for everyone who made the EYO Fall Classic possible. It’s nice to have some normalcy in our lives! I am very thankful that Tyler Norvell was willing to take time out of his busy schedule to sit down and go over the EYO Fall Classic with me. While talking to Norvell I learned there were 1,176 exhibitors that participated, and they reprePage 42 - Nov/Dec 2020

sented 76 of Oklahoma’s 77 counties. These students competed in a variety of contests. Members from my local community entered contests including crops, market and breeding livestock, photography and news reporting pieces. With all of those exhibitors came families and spectators. Norvell estimated the economic impact the show had on the city of Duncan was about one million dollars. Considering the limited time to put on such a big event, I would have to say the OYE staff, Stephens County Fairgrounds, and the Duncan Chamber of Commerce did a great job. Also, the entire City of Duncan should be congratulated for their part in hosting EYO. As a senior,

who has had to accept that many traditions and events are going to be canceled this year, I find it encouraging that there are people willing to go to this amount of effort for the students in Oklahoma. At this point in time there has been no talk about the EYO Fall Classic being an annual show. Norvell said, “We hope next year to be having the Oklahoma State Fair Livestock Show that the OYE staff puts on each year.” Only time will tell if that show will be held, but whether it is the Oklahoma State Fair or EYO, I am confident FFA and 4-H members and their families will be happy to have a fair to attend to showcase their projects. agyouth.com

The Warner FFA team had an exciting event to start the 2020 year. The Warner FFA Ice Cream Social was held in the courtyard of the school on October 5th with all social distancing protocols followed. The event was still filled with fun games and activities. To kick off the event, all officers took to their stations and began opening ceremonies as with all meetings. After opening ceremonies, members, guests, and officers all enjoyed a bowl of delicious ice cream and cookies. The first main event was a competitive cornhole tournament. After Hayden McElyea and Braden Watts took the win, we were off to the next event. Each officer picked a team of five to take a t-shirt and a pair of underwear down to a goat which their team leader
