WEST LAFAYETTE — Churubusco High School FFA members recently competed in the State FFA Wildlife Habitat Contest at Purdue University's Martel Forest, near the West Lafayette campus.
After winning the regional contest a few weeks prior, the team of Alexis Starkey, Nick Teague and Ben Teague was named state runner-up.
Starkey placed first individually in the contest, with Ben Teague placing third. By placing first, Starkey wins a four-day trip to Washington, D.C. later this summer as part of the Indiana 4-H/FFA top individuals awards trip.
By placing second overall, Churubusco's team now qualifies to compete in the National FFA Environmental & Natural Resource Science contest at the National FFA Convention in October.
