Leadership Development Events aslo known as LDEs
Leadership Development Events focus on creating situations for members to demonstrate their abilities in public speaking, decision making, leadership, communication and their knowledge of agriculture and the FFA organization. Team and individual events are used to reinforce what is taught in agricultural science classrooms.
There are ten LDEs in the state of Texas. All LDE events have elimination rounds at the district and area level before the state level competition. Please refer to your district and area calendars for competition dates.
