Representing Clear Spring were bronze medalists Dylan Baker and Lakyn Sanders. Hannah House, Casie Robertson, and Paige Shirk received individual silver medals.

The team was coached by FFA Adviser Terrie Shank.

Participants in the event were asked to attend a press conference, utilize information gathered in a team activity and complete an individual practicum on Web design, graphic design, radio broadcast, writing a press release and writing a news article. Competitors also were tested on their editing, general knowledge of the communications industry and other communications skills.

The National FFA Agricultural Communications CDE is sponsored by DTN/The Progressive Farmer and the National FFA Foundation.
