FFA State Convention

The Salem Hills FFA got to go to an in-person state convention on March 10th and the 11th. It was good to be able to attend in-person convection because the last 2 have been virtual. It was the first in-person State FFA Convention that our 27 students have ever been to. They enjoyed awards ceremonies, keynote speakers, workshops, and interacting with other FFA students throughout the state. It was nice to be back in the sea of blue corduroy jackets. Some major highlights are the National FFA Advisor, James Woodard, came and actually sat with our FFA chapter for one of the sessions. Another Highlight was Greg Peterson from the youtube channel Peterson farm Bros who spoke to the students about being an agricultural advocate. (video of my favorite video:
