2020-2021 Holland FFA Activities Above the Local Level
Sioux County Youth Fair
The Sioux County Youth Fair granted members of our chapter to showcase certain skills that they have been working on for the past year. The fair, which occurred during July was a very successful event for us. Katie Plendl, Allison Probst, Kyle Hansen, Connor Oolman, Angel Huisman, and Maddison Probst all showed different animals at the fair. Caylee Van Donkelaar, Katie Plendl, and Allison Probst all had static events that made it to the state fair.
