There is nothing more fun than some healthy competition and games revolving around agriculture. Monday, September 19, the Cedar Springs FFA Chapter held their annual Ag Olympics. The event was open to all students and was a great opportunity to publicize the club. State officers Madeline Meyer and Jose Cervantes were invited to take part in the event,

The afternoon consisted of a round bail roll, square bail toss, pitchfork javelin toss, sack race, milk chugging, and an egg toss. Competition ran high during the pitchfork toss in particular, which was a difficult game to win. Adam Parker, the first place winner, won by pure luck. The sack race was a real tumble for many contestants but in the end Adam Parker and Nate Schoen prevailed. The milk chug was the most entertaining event of the afternoon. Boys and girls lined up with their cup of milk in hand, waiting for the signal to start. The contestants gulped down milk, some dripping more than others, with a result of Ian Savickas taking first place. State officers Maddie and Jose took first place in the round bail roll.

They concluded the evening with pizza and prizes. Ag Olympics had a nice turnout of about 25 students. The chapter was eager to host the event to show the state officers what the Cedar Springs chapter was all about. It was a successful event to gain new members while celebrating agriculture. Thank you to Madeline Meyer and Jose Cervantes for attending and to all of the students who got involved!
