Career Development Events

Career opportunities abound within today’s agriculture industry. Career Development Events (CDEs) help students develop the abilities to think critically, communicate clearly, and perform effectively in a competitive job market.

There are 29 CDEs, covering job skills in everything from public speaking 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 a CDE.
