Habersham Central and Habersham Ninth Grade Academy FFA members recently competed in the Area II FFA Floral Design Career Development Event on September 29, 2016 at Jackson County High School. The Floral Design Career Development Event allows students to utilize the principles and elements of design. Each student makes two floral arrangements and answers questions by a panel of judges concerning floral design principles. Students use 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 student from Habersham Central was Trisha Mull, and the student from Habersham Ninth Grade Academy was Amber Faith Farr.
