Becca Deming placed 73rd and Alex Young placed 81st out of 197 competitors in Agronomy, Landin Skov placed 112th and Alex young placed 114th out of 264 in Ag Mechanics, Alexis Griggs placed 37th out of 89 competitors in Employment Skills, Ally Young placed 54th and Lexie Selting placed 96th out of 297 participants in Livestock Evaluation, Anna Dragseth placed 2nd and Ally Young placed 13th in Ag Communications, Anna Dragseth placed 3rd and Ally Young placed 10th in Agriscience Fair, Lexie Selting placed 16th in Horse Evaluation out of 145 competitors, and Jaycie Rau placed 37th out of 248 participants in Vet Science.

"The John Deere Ag Expo is one of my favorite events because of the many competitions they provide and the amount of people from all over Montana that attend. I loved the Vet Science competition because it gives me a jumpstart into my future career as a Veterinarian. Last year, I placed 80th and this year I placed 37th in the competition. It was so exciting seeing my improvement from last year and that shows that studying really does pay off," said Jaycie Rau, Secretary of Fairview's FFA Chapter.
