Teams included Public Relations, Job Interview, Ag Issues, Farm Skills, Radio Broadcasting, Job Interview, Creed Speaking, FFA Quiz, and Chapter Conducting.
These teams were coached by East Central FFA advisors Ray Pieniazek, Danny Kempen, and Lorie Kempen.

The Alamo District is home to Burbank, Highlands, La Vernia, Judson, James Madison, Southside, Southwest, Somerset, and East Central. Area 7 consists of chapters from Austin to the Hill Country through Smithville and back down to IH 10 to San Antonio. The Area 7 Leadership contest was held Nov. 16 in Blanco.
Only the top two teams in each event at the area level will qualify for the state contest Friday and Saturday, Dec. 2-3, at Sam Houston State University.
