Future Farmers of America are in Longview hoping to earn some honors and earn a little prize-money. It's the annual Harvest Festival at the Longview rodeo grounds pavilion. Hundreds of FFA kids from all over East Texas are attending, trying to take top honors in judging for their livestock. For the kids and adults, it's a chance for fun and an important learning process.
"Kids get to learn life's responsibilities here. And it's not all about winning, but competing and how they do," said Waskom visitor Ronald Jones.
The Harvest Festival continues tomorrow, and is free to the public.
