Mount Si FFA Students Shine at State Fairs

  • Congratulations to our Mount Si High School Future Farmers of America (FFA) student leaders! Our students competed at the 2022 Washington State Fair in Puyallup this month and at the Evergreen State Fair in Monroe in August.


    Most recently, at the Washington State Fair in Puyallup, 11 Mount Si FFA members competed in the Livestock and Dairy Judging contests on Saturday, September 17. This competition tests the reasoning and knowledge skills of members. They had a great time and some first-time participants did very well! See their results below.
