Career and Leadership Development Events

There are 25 Career and Leadership Development Events (CDEs and LDEs) and one activity for FFA members that range from skills of communications to mechanics. They are designed for students to develop their skills in a career or leadership area and expose them to opportunities in agriculture. There are options for individual contests and recognition as well as working on a team.
