"Call to convention"


Between convention sessions and Career and Leadership Development Events, students will have the opportunity to explore the career show, attend career and leadership workshops or travel to several tours. Complete workshop and tour descriptions will be made available in advance of the convention.

Career and Leadership Development Events (CDEs and LDEs):

State qualifiers and final rounds of 24 technical and leadership skills events will take place at this year's convention. Students can take part in any number of these events or watch, learn, and observe as others compete by demonstrating their talents, aptitudes and abilities. Many of the CDE's serve as qualifiers to the National FFA Convention. Check out what is available to your students at State Convention.

Guest Speakers:

An awesome lineup of motivational, informational, and inspirational speakers will be present at this year's Convention. In addition to our retiring addresses made by state FFA officers, these presentations will undoubtedly impact your students. Watch for details in the Convention announcements.
