Career and leadership opportunities abound within today’s agriculture industry. Career and leadership development events (CDEs & LDEs) help students develop the abilities to think critically, communicate clearly and perform effectively in a competitive job market.
There are 24 CDEs and LDEs, covering job skills in everything from communications to mechanics. Some events allow students to compete as individuals, while others allow them to compete in teams.
For more information, talk to your FFA advisor or state FFA association about how you can get involved in the CDE and LDE awards program.
