On Nov. 7th, four Paulding FFA members attended the district food science contest. There were ten schools that attended the district contest this year.

Team members included Shannon Hale, Paige Jones, Jonathon Reinhard, and Sydney Reineck.

The contest consisted of a team and individual part. As a team, the members had to complete a product development scenario.

This consists of designing the packaging, creating the nutrition label, and finding all of the nutrition information for the given product.

The individual part of the contest consists of identifying aromas, identifying food processing equipment, and responding to customer inquiries.

They also must be able to identify safety hazards around food and complete a math portion about the calories in food.

Individually, Jonathan Reinhard placed first in the district and Paige Jones placed second.

As a team, they placed first out of ten schools. The team will advance to the state competition Dec. 7 in Columbus.
