Imperial FFA members competed in the Imperial section opening and closing ceremonies contest recently at Brawley Union High School.
The Oct. 18 contest consisted of three divisions: novice, open and advanced. Teams consist of six members who represent the six constitutional officers of a chapter: president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, reporter and sentinel opening and closing a mock FFA meeting.
The novice division is opened to first-year freshmen and sophomore students in FFA. Imperial's team consisted of president Laura Archuleta; vice president Mario Zairdo; secretary Georgina Garcia; treasurer Abraham Vandiver; reporter Dana Campbell; and sentinel Breeana Beltran and Jacob Jones.
The novice team placed first in the contest with Archuleta and Campbell winning the best officer position for the respective office.
