The National FFA Agricultural Sales CDE is a competitive activity that allows students to apply classroom knowledge to real-life situations. The event includes actual sales presentations, a written exam, a team sales situation, an individual practical situation focusing on customer relations, customer service or prospecting for customers. Each team competed at local and state levels for the privilege of representing their state at the national FFA convention.
The event, held at the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown Hotel in Indianapolis, Ind., is one of many educational activities at the national FFA convention in which FFA members practice the lessons taught in agricultural education classes.
Members of the West Rowan FFA Chapter were one of 33 teams participating in the National FFA Marketing Plan Career Development Event (CDE).

The National FFA Marketing Plan CDE helps students practice and sharpen skills in marketing through the development and presentation of a marketing plan.

Each team competed against teams in their state for the privilege of participating in the national event.
