More than 12,700 Texas FFA members participated in 28 different Career Development Events this spring—each one vying to be named state champion in their respective contest.

Career Development Events (CDEs) expand on what is taught in agricultural classes and encourage members to put their knowledge into practice. These events are designed to help a member prepare for a career in agriculture by testing and challenging the student's technical, leadership, interpersonal and teamwork skills as well as their knowledge of the subject matter.

Many CDEs are qualifying events for the National FFA CDE competition and/or offer scholarship opportunities.
