Hannah Willett made the top 24 of her Texas FFA State Officer candidacy but came up a little short on making the top 12 and a member of the officer team.
Officer candidates must take part in a three-part process for consideration: an exam, interview, and popular vote. The exam covers information also included in the Senior FFA Quiz and a writing sample. The interview component includes an application and an interview. Candidates for state office must also prepare a speech to be delivered to the voting delegates during the convention. After delivering their speech, candidates will be asked a thought question to be answered extemporaneously. Voting delegates will cast their vote for state office based upon the candidate's performance on stage, FFA involvement, and behavior. All components of the process will be combined to determine the area's state officer and ultimately the State President and State First Vice President.
