I have a few kids interested in participating in the Ag Sales Competition. I have not done this contest before, and I was wondering if anyone had any good resources you use for training your teams.

I think you'll also find some other posts by searching 'ag sales' here in Communities. Have fun, it's a good event and great skills for the kids to learn!
Make sure to read the Ag Sales rules (I am sure you have done so already) there are references listed at the bottome. Students ony have to do 1 practicum and this year it is the customer relations. Should you have any other questions, feel free to pass them my way, I am hosting for D7 and have asked a lot of questions so far to figure out what I need to do to host!
I co-chair the PA Ag Sales CDE. A great resource to get kids started is the Ag Sales DVD from National FFA.
I have attached several of the files I have compiled over the years.
All national CDE's wil be modified/updated for 2012 Natl Convention.
The PA Ag Sales question bank I attached has questions from the current and previous national sales chairmen.
A sample of the Ag Sales product summary sheet and the two day Ag Sales CDe outline we use for our State FFA Activities Week is below.
Our PA FFA website is also a great resource for CDE materials: http://www.paffa.state.pa.us/CDE%20Manual.htm
Here are some files on my computer. Our Fl site is down right now but when it gets back up I'll email and send the link with all of our past contest examples.
