Annual Sponsorships

  • Career Development Events

    Knowing that one in every three people in Nebraska is employed in an agriculturally based career, the Nebraska Agricultural Education Career Development Events (CDEs) help students develop the abilities to think critically, communicate clearly, and perform effectively in a competitive job market.

    Nebraska hosts 19 CDEs, covering job skills in everything from communications to mechanics. These events typically cover the technical skill areas related to the agriculture, food, and natural resources career field. Together with the Leadership Development Events (LDEs) organized by the Nebraska FFA Association, students in agricultural education compete in a variety of events that sharpen their skills as they explore and experience careers in agriculture. CDEs take place alongside the Nebraska FFA Convention in early April on UNL's East Campus, at Southeast Community College in Lincoln, and at Pinnacle Bank Arena.

    Such contests include:
    Ag Communications
    Ag Sales
    Natural Resources
    Food Science
    Livestock Evaluation
    Meats Evaluation
