Students showed off the fruits of their labor and displayed their skills in agriculture.

The winners of each event were named at a ceremony Saturday afternoon.

“I think everyone serves to benefit from better understanding where their food fiber fuel systems comes from and the people associated with that. I think especially as our world population grows, we need to be cognizant of the people who are providing for us. Especially as legislation is getting passed. We need to be cognizant of what the legislation does for people,” said Anna Grulikowski, Chapter President of South Orange County FFA.

The winners of each category will represent California at the National Future Farmers Convention in Indianapolis this October.
