Press release

The National FFA Convention took place online Oct. 27-29.

The 93rd annual convention is one of the longest-running conventions in the U.S. and attracted nearly 217,500 people who participated online.

Multiple speakers entertained thousands, including NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine and U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue.

Leadership workshops were held throughout the convention and sponsors and exhibitors from across the U.S. participated in the virtual trade show. Additionally, national winners were determined in a number of individual events.

Montana's Caroline Roeder from Choteau and Hobson's Claire Stevenson were named as one of four national finalists in the areas of sheep production proficiency and beef production proficiency respectively.

Andee Baker from Park City represented Montana in her unsuccessful bid for a national FFA officer position.

Thirty-nine Montana FFA members earned the American FFA Degree. The American FFA Degree is the highest degree that can be bestowed upon a member.
