Student, Essex Agricultural and Technical Institute, Class of 2016,
The most popular activities would consist of FFA and Skills USA. These are two wonderful programs that my high school offers. FFA is for the agricultural part of the school, anyone in an agricultural major can join and compete in many competition all around Massachusetts and even in Kentucky. Skills USA is offered to all students that have majored in a technical area. These students go out and compete with other schools on criteria that is specific to ones shop.
I would highly recommend these extracurricular activities because they really give you a chance to show the skills you have in your majors.
