More than 8,000 students converged on Columbia, Mo., for the 95th Missouri FFA Convention on April 20-21.
Some FFA members were there for awards — 962 members received State FFA Degrees, and 554 FFA members earned awards in 45 agricultural proficiency areas for their Supervised Agricultural Experience program. Others competed on contest teams from livestock judging to parliamentary procedure. But most walked away with memories to last a lifetime.
This year’s theme was Ignite, Embrace, Empower, and Missouri Ruralist took it to heart. My niece Tinleigh Spoonster from the Clopton FFA chapter took over our coverage for a day and asked members questions about the convention, contest teams and SAEs. Click on the above video to see if your chapter member made the cut.
Editor’s note: FFA parents you have some amazing kids. The future of Missouri agriculture looks bright!
