The Elite Conference Registration is now open for high school students interested in pursuing a career in agricultural education!  

The need for agriculture teachers in the state of Illinois and nationwide are very high.  This one day workshop gives students with an interest in teaching a chance to explore the possibilities agriculture education has to offer.  It is a great opportunity to meet other students with similar interests, talk with college and university representatives and get any questions answered.  This event will be held on September 17th, 2021 (note this is a change from past years)!  We would like to have students with a genuine interest in pursuing Agriculture Education in attendance

This year we will be have a track for those that are first time attendees and those that have attended in the past.  Registration space is limited so make sure to get students registered early.  Also consider having students check out, compete in the Illinois FFA Ag Ed CDE, participate in a GAST grant or start an SAE project!
