Ground Zero      
Illinois FFA is excited to host the first ever  “Ground Zero” conference designed for 8th - 10th grade level students.  This event will replace the traditional 212 Conference. The Major State FFA Oofficers are taking the lead in designing the curriculum and the activities prevalent throughout the conference, while the Section Presidents will take on the roles of group/breakout room leaders.  

FFA Week      
Each year, FFA Chapters around the country celebrate National FFA Week, and this week-long tradition began in 1947 in conjunction with George Washington’s birthday. George Washington is recognized due to his legacy as an agriculturalist and farmer.

2020-2021 Chapter Visits      
Chapter Visits may look a bit different this year but your 2020-2021 State Officers are excited to share their messages, take part in Meet & Greets with your chapter, and help you to set your goals for the year. 

Career & Leadership Development Events      
FFA members focus on skill development and career preparation through participation in competitive career and leadership development events that develop individual responsibility, foster teamwork and promote communication while recognizing the value of ethical competition and individual achievement.

National FFA Convention      
Every year, FFA members nationwide converge on the National FFA Convention & Expo to celebrate their accomplishments and find inspiration for their next steps. Motivational keynote speakers, energetic concerts, fulfilling workshops and a sweeping expo floor bustling with agricultural education and industry opportunities will have you snapping pics and grabbing videos of all of the experiences you’ll remember forever.
