Orlando, Fla. – The Lake Butler FFA Chapter won the State Parliamentary Procedure Career Development Event. The chapter was honored at the 84th Annual State FFA Convention.

The contest also includes a team’s ability to record complete and accurate minutes. The event also serves as a leadership development activity.
The top four teams in the state received trophies and individual members of the first place team received trophies from the state sponsor, Florida Farm Bureau Federation. Other chapters in the top four were:
