A List of Things You MUST Do At National FFA Convention
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!
