Liberty County High School FFA member Kayla Dargan took second place overall in the state FFA Floral Design Career Development event Saturday, Dec. 6, at Abraham Baldwin Agriculture College in Tifton.
The event allows students to utilize the principles and elements of design. In the senior design competition, the student creates two designs based on scenarios given to them, completes a 25-question basic-knowledge test and identifies 25 products and hard goods. Students used the principles of balance, proportion and scale, focal point, emphasis, rhythm, harmony and unity, and the technique of flower placement to create their designs. The designs are then evaluated by a panel of certified florists.
Dargan’s combined scores allowed her to place second overall.
Dargan, a junior, is the daughter of Angel and Cleveland Dargan of Hinesville.
