State Awards Day Notice:

On March 11, University of Illinois President Tim Killeen announced COVID-19 proactive health and safety policies. The policies are specific to three categories: instruction, events, and travel. As stated in his email, “Events with more than 50 attendees that are university-sponsored or hosted by registered

student organizations will be suspended indefinitely, effective Friday, March 13.” As a result, the University of Illinois will not be able to host State FFA Awards Day on March 21, 2020.

We are currently monitoring and developing contingency plans for State Awards Day next week. We still have many conversations to be had with potential host sites and our boards before final announcements are made.

Please be assured that we are communicating with multiple state agencies, universities, contest host sites, and our boards to discuss and develop plans of actions for all upcoming events.  Please watch the listserv for future updates as they are available.  

Thank you for your patience during this time of uncertainty.
