Park FFA Wins NILE Competition

The Park FFA Chapter took 12 students to the Northern International Livestock Exposition (NILE) in Billings, MT on October 17th. The sales and service competition is comprised of a written test, a team problem where judges as questions about how they would deal with customers, sales scenarios, and the knowledge of the product they are selling, and an individual sale with a judge. They put together a binder of the given products they are to sell; this year it was Purina feed supplements. The Sales and Service Team competed with 36 other teams for the champion title. They took home the 1st place win. Individually Katelyn Frost placed 2nd out of 144, Ava Malone placed 7th, Haley Rigler placed 6th, and Kaylee Roberts placed 10th. Congratulations to this team!
