National Convention is an event unlike anything you’ll ever do in FFA. How many times do you get to spend time with your 64,000+ closest friends from around the country? I went to convention 6 times in high school and college, and I have a few things you have to do!

 

  • Before you even pull into convention, make sure you download the convention app - they have Apple & Android versions for you with tons of great information on how to navigate your way through the event. 

  • Head over to Bankers Life Fieldhouse (BLF) to check out the Opening Session… How many times in your life do you get to see a legend like Laila Ali speak? Trust me, opening session is THE place to be.

  • Talk to your advisor and check out some of the entertainment. Whether you’re checking out the World’s Toughest Rodeo, Rascal Flatts or the hypnotist; there is plenty of entertainment to go around!

  • Get to a session early to get hyped in the pre-session! There is music, games, and all sorts of fun to be had.

  • Tweet your favorite quote from one of the six awesome Retiring Addresses. Make sure you use the convention hashtag #ICanWeWillFFA

  • You HAVE to check out the FFA Expo… Here are some of my top picks for exploring this massive expo hall:

    • Grab your convention swag from the National FFA Shop.

    • Check out some of the hottest ag technology shaping the industry. 

    • Find a college or trade school you’d love to attend. This is a great time to learn more about your plans after high school.

  • Challenge your fellow chapter to members to see who can meet people from all 50 states first. (Trust me, it can be done!)

  • Choose from one of 38 workshops to attend. Whether you're looking for more motivation or checking out different career options, there's something for everyone! (Here is the official list)

  • Go check out some local landmarks in Indy if you have time! A few ideas include: Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Lucas Oil Stadium and Central Canal. 

  • Join the anticipation to see who is elected as the next National Officers and bid farewell to our current team at the last session.

  • Have the time of your life!
