The annual Iowa FFA Nursery/Landscape Career Development Event held at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids on June 14.

The event consisted of a general knowledge exam, a landscape estimation practicum, a customer service activity, identification of nursery materials (plants, disorders, equipment and supplies), and situation assessment and solution. FFA members that participated were Rease Morris, Nash Kennedy and Carson Skinner. They received a Silver for their efforts.
