From motivational keynote speakers and energetic concerts to fulfilling workshops and a sweeping Expo floor bustling with agriculture education and industry opportunities, you’ll be snapping pictures and grabbing videos of experiences you’ll remember for a lifetime.
Ten Missouri FFA members have been selected as national finalists in their respective proficiency award areas and will be honored during the National FFA Convention Oct. 25-28 in Indianapolis.
The National Chapter Award Program is designed to recognize FFA chapters that actively implement the mission and strategies of the organization. These chapters improve chapter operations using the National Quality Chapter Standards (NQCS) and a Program of Activities (POA) that emphasize growing leaders, building communities and strengthening agriculture. Chapters are rewarded for providing educational experiences for the entire membership.
From communications to mechanics to livestock judging, 25 career and leadership development (CDE and LDE) events help FFA members complete as individuals and in teams to sharpen their leadership skills and agricultural knowledge.
