89th Annual FFA Convention Kicks off in Indy

transform-reveal-1024x1024The 89th National FFA Convention has kicked off in Indianapolis, IN and this year’s theme is “Transform: Purpose to Action.” So why transform? By working together, people can transform the message of agriculture. Together, FFA members can continue to educate others on the importance of agriculture. This year’s conference will highlight ways FFA members have spent their time giving back to others and serving their communities. Several programs include FOOD for ALL and Living to Serve grants to National FFA Week. And this week, during the National FFA Convention & Expo, FFA members are once again serving others by giving their time and talents during the National Days of Service.

This week there will be teacher and student workshops along with inspiring speakers. Special thanks to New Holland and FMC for sponsoring our onsite coverage.
