A Discussion Meet contest is designed to simulate a committee meeting where discussion and active participa-tion are expected from each participant. The competition is evaluated on an exchange of ideas and information on a pre-determined topic. Judges are looking for the contestant that offers constructive criticism, cooperation, and communication while analyzing agricultural problems and developing solutions. Sponsored by the Georgia Farm Bureau, the event is one of many educational activities in which FFA members practice the lessons taught in agri-cultural education classes.
The Georgia FFA Organization is a youth organization of more than 32,000 student members focused on prepar-ing for leadership and careers in the science, business and technology of agriculture. The FFA mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education. Georgia Department of Education provides support, leadership and helps set direction for the FFA as a service to the local agricultural education programs.
