COLUMBUS – The Versailles FFA Agricultural Issue team participated in the state agricultural issue contest on April 28 at Columbus.

The agricultural issue contest consists of picking an important and debatable topic and showing both sides of the argument without taking a stance on the issue.

The Versailles FFA team chose to debate on Dannon’s issue with GMO and non-GMOs. The team was required to put together a portfolio and present a Power Point presentation about the topic to a panel of judges at the state fair. Before the team could present the final time, they first had to give the presentation to different organizations.

The ag issue team placed third overall in the state and earned the fourth banner for the classroom. The team consisted of Shiloh Hess, Emma Gasson, Faith Wilker, Kennedy Hughes and Madison Henry.
