Retiring Minnesota State FFA Reporter Anna Eurle says it’s been a rewarding Minnesota FFA Convention, even though the event is not in person. COVID changed the year. “We been mostly hanging out with FFA members across the state in Zoom meetings and it’s been interesting to see the ones showing up. They’re typically not the students usually the ones we connect with. It’s cool we can open up opportunities for everyone.” Despite the COVID pandemic, Eurle says Minnesota FFA increased membership. “State membership in 2020 increased about 1,000 members. We have more than 12,000 members altogether. It wasn’t something we were expecting, but more students were willing to go the extra mile and make sure they were getting involved.”
