LOUISVILLE- Winners of the National FFA Parliamentary Procedure Career Development Event (CDE) were announced on Friday at the annual awards banquet. The event was held in conjunction with the 88th National FFA Convention & Expo in Louisville, Ky. Dr. Daniel Foster with Penn State University served as superintendent of this year\'s event.

The Marysville FFA Chapter earned a gold emblem ranking this year representing the State of Kansas.

The members of the national winning team each received cash awards to recognize their success in the event. The cash awards and the parliamentary procedure event are sponsored by TransCanada as a special project of the National FFA Foundation and the National FFA Organization.

The National FFA Parliamentary Procedure CDE tests students\' ability to effectively communicate ideas during a meeting. Components included a general knowledge exam of parliamentary law, a ten-minute demonstration of parliamentary procedure, oral questions, written minutes of the demonstration as well as a team problem solving activity. Each team competed on local and state levels to earn the privilege of representing their state at the National FFA Convention & Expo.

The event, held at the Galt House Hotel and Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Ky., is one of many educational activities at the National FFA Convention & Expo in which FFA members practice the lessons taught in agricultural education classes.
