The Minnesota State FFA Convention is happening this week. There is a mix of virtual sessions, live recognition and interactive competitions. President Ben Olander from Staples says the convention will be a great cap to the year. “It will be a packed convention, and we’ll be traveling to local chapters this week meeting with FFA members.” Treasurer Elaina Knott from Thief River Falls says throughout the COVID pandemic, there’s been different opportunities to lead FFA members. “One of the challenges this year was finding ways to reach more students in engaging ways, overcoming Zoom fatigue and the want to not be on technology anymore and meeting with more members than we normally would. This is a key point from my year.” Opening ceremonies and more start today. Watch the live stream.
