FFA members and supporters from across the country will log on to their smart devices next week to celebrate agricultural education and agriculture during the 93rd National FFA Convention & Expo. The event, which is traditionally the largest student convention in the country, will be held virtually this year, allowing even more people to participate in the event. The national convention and expo is an opportunity for FFA members from all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands to be exposed to new career paths and opportunities — while celebrating the accomplishments these future leaders have made over the past year. Those who register for the virtual event can experience many of the traditional convention experiences. Members can connect via Zoom through a member experience room. They can visit the Expo Hall, where businesses and colleges will be on hand to discuss various career pathways in agriculture. The FFA Blue Room will also allow convention attendees to discover cutting-edge technology, research and innovation in agriculture. Through experiential learning and specific focus on the most critical challenges facing our communities — from respecting the planet to feeding the world — the FFA Blue Room will inspire and equip students to activate their potential. Attendees can also participate in student and teacher workshops, which will be available on-demand. We will have updates from all 25+ knuj area FFA chapters starting next week.
