Nevada FFA won first place in the Story County Fair Youth Grilling Contest in the FFA competition. Wyatt Lewis represented the Nevada FFA in the contest, which was sponsored by Story County Pork Producers on behalf of the Iowa Pork Producers Association. Lewis marinated his pork loin for 24 hours, wrapped it in bacon and placed it on the grill for over two hours at the fairgrounds. He also prepared a side dish of gonzo beans with maple syrup and bacon.
The Nevada FFA and Wyatt have been invited to compete at the Iowa State Fair pork grilling contest on Aug. 13. Nevada FFA will be receiving a monetary donation from the pork producers, who also donated the pork loin for the contest.
