The Montana FFA concluded its 93rd Annual State FFA Convention in Great Falls handing out many awards and recognition.

The highlight of the day was the announcement of the 2023- 2024 State FFA Officer Team.  This group of 8 leaders will travel the state over the next year putting on workshops, working with FFA students and speaking with donors.

Their year of service will be educational to them as well.  They will travel to the west coast on a commodity grain tour and they will spend countless hours interviewing with the media to help get the word out about Montana FFA.

You will see this group back in Great Falls for the 2024 KMON MAGIE next January.  They will be here this summer during the Montana State fair and you will also see them around town for various other events.

The Montana FFA is a state wide organization that has over 5000 students in 108 chapters.  The FFA is an intra-curricular activity which means that to be a part of the organization you must attend a agricultural education class offered by the school.  Sports are extra-curricular, which means you only need to attend the school to participate. These kids/ young adults are the future of our country and our world.

Congratulations to all of the chapters and members of the Montana FFA!
