The job interview competition is an event where youth who are a part of agriculture can practice applying for any job they want. They go through the full process of creating a resume, filling out the application, sitting through an interview and creating a follow-up letter.
Brooke Chilcutt, is a 16-year-old girl from Wetherford, Texas, is one of those students who competed in the job interview contest this year at the State Fair of Texas®. Brooke is a part of FFA and competes with her school at all levels.
Brooke got her background in agriculture by her dad growing up in the dairy business. The family is no longer involved with dairy, but they continue to stay a part of the agricultural world.
In the past Brooke has shown pigs, lambs, goats and sheep. Her favorite animal to compete with is the coifish. She has won state with her coifish and loves to work with them. These types of competition are her favorite things to talk about.
Brooke is a very motivated girl who is trying to get the most out of every opportunity. Throughout all of her competitions she has earned $11,000 in scholarships; $10,000 of it coming from her freshman year showing market lambs.
Chilcutt serves as vice president of her local FFA chapter. Besides serving as an officer, she competes in chapter conducting as well as both wool and livestock judging. She strives to be the best, and nothing holds her back.
Brooke plans on attending either Texas Tech University or Texas A&M University- “Whichever school gives me more money is where I’m going to go.” She plans on majoring in agricultural education, and getting a masters in agricultural Communications.
Brooke is a person who will continue to bring agriculture awareness to the surface. Her love for the industry and drive for success will make her a force to be reckoned with. She is a true leader in her community and will do incredible things with her big personality.
