Each year we are so excited to bring these students together along with their FFA advisors to provide an experience that connects them with chapters from across the state as well as sponsors, alumni and supporters. There are opportunities for competition, recognition and education all wrapped up in the week of convention so those in attendance leave re-energized as future leaders for the agricultural industry.”
