I recently went to the Minnesota State FFA Convention. It was the best one I have ever been to. The people, speakers, and friends were fantastic. FFA to people means many different things, but really it just means "Ag Education."


To students, it can mean so much more. Some may think that it is just a way to skip one more day of school, to others it is place to make new friends and a place for them to learn skills so they can be tomorrow's leaders.
