The District V Agriculture Education Career Development Event was held on Tuesday, December 7th at Mt. Vernon High School. Thank you to Ms. Cherie Rogier for serving as the location host. 

Students participating submitted a lesson plan, prior to the event, that they would teach to an Intro to Agriculture Education class. Participants then presented a ten minute segment of their designed lesson to a room of students while the judges observed. The individuals participating were scored on their lesson plan, delivery of lesson as well as follow up questions in addition to their provided reflection and a written test. 

Congratulations to our top individuals: 

1st place - Ms. Lydia Phelps, Marion 

2nd place - Ms. Halle Klockenga, Mt. Vernon

3rd place - Ms. Haley Bode, Waterloo

Other schools participating included Clay City, DuQuoin, Eldorado, Mt. Carmel and New Athens.

A special thank you to our judges for the event:

  • Jennifer Heinzmann, Former Agriculture Teacher

  • Dusti Ingles,  Former Agriculture Teacher

  • Josh Berg, Okawville Agriculture Teacher

  • Lucille Smith, Jefferson County Ag in the Classroom Coordinator

  • Parker Jones, Farm Credit HR Generalist

  • Zach O’Neal, Farm Credit VP Lending

An additional thank you goes to the state and section officers that helped make this event possible by serving as the “students” who the participants presented their lesson to. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Farm Credit of Mt. Vernon for providing a light meal for all volunteers and section officers that made the event possible. 

Thank you to the agriculture teachers/FFA advisors for encouraging your students to participate.  Congratulations to all students participating.
