  Elite Conference Registration Open  
  Megan Coy  8/6/2019 3:04:00 PM  


The Elite Conference Registration is now open for high school students interested in pursing 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 National Teach Ag Day, September 19th, 2019!  

Included in this email are 2 word documents: a personal invite to the student, and a letter to the parent/guardian of the student invited.  These special documents provide an element of distinction for this event. We would like to have students with a genuine interest in pursuing Agriculture Education in attendance.  NOTE: Please read and revise, as they are not "just print" documents!

This year we will be giving first preference to students that have not attended the Elite Conference before, with the possibility of repeat students being able to attend if space/resources allow.  If you have students that have attended and would like to continue to explore agriculture education, have them check out, compete in the Illinois FFA Ag Ed CDE, participate in a GAST grant or start an SAE project! 


When: Thursday September 19, 2019 ; Est Time: 9:30 AM -2:30 PM
Where: Bloomington-Normal (more details to be shared at a later time)
Dress: Official FFA Dress, or equivalent (long sleeve dress shirt, black pants)
Registration- please direct your students to complete!  (Registration will stay open till September 4th)  You will receive a confirmation email within three days of registering.  

If there are any questions, please email them to
