Mulhall-Orlando FFA Members Compete in Local Barbeque Sauce Contest

Body
As the second semester of school started, M-O FFA teacher Tonya Middleton continued to challenge our chapter with exceptional learning experiences. On January 6th, a group of Freshman and Sophomore Mulhall-Orlando FFA Members participated in a Chapter BBQ Sauce contest. The contest was related to their studies on the history and safety of food science. At the conclusion of the segment, the members had to make their own unique BBQ Sauce applying what knowledge they had learned. As part of the challenge, they also had to design and fabricate their own label based on USDA standards and finally bottle their product. This practical application of scholastic knowledge is the foundation of FFA’s learning model.
