According to Minnesota State FFA President Ben Olander, FFA members are comfortable with technology and embraced the National FFA Organization’s virtual convention. “Although it looks a little different this year, it is something our generation can readily adapt to; it also allows members who were not able to attend in person can participate in every session this year.” With young people comfortable with the online experience, Olander expects the FFA to deliver a hybrid option for the convention in the future. Olander is a graduate of Staples-Motley High School and is now a student at the University of Minnesota-Crookston, studying ag business and agronomy.
