Montana Students Amplify FFA at National Convention


Over seven-hundred Montana FFA members recently participated in the National FFA Convention in Louisville, Ky.  This annual convention was attended by over 65,000 FFA members from across the nation.  This attendance milestone set a new record in the organization’s 88th year of existence. 

Montana FFA members competed in 20 different career development events.  The Ag Sales team from Missoula led the way for Montana chapters with a fourth place finish.  Belgrade’s Farm Business Management Team placed 7th which was the only other team from Montana in the nation’s top ten.  Other teams and individuals did very well in representing their chapters, schools and state.  In addition to competitions, members participated in a variety of leadership activities and educational opportunities. 




The Montana FFA Association was recognized as the first place state in the nation in regards to percentage of membership gained in one year.  The association received an award banner and recognition during one of the convention sessions for this honor.  The state association also received a gold award for being a 100{257ecae47c7fec349321aca28547072fa2160c1991a573be7695613338f0f130} membership state.  This means that every student in Montana’s Agriculture Education classes are also FFA members. 

Montana FFA’s State Officers will be visiting schools across Montana during December and January.  These leadership based visits will mark the beginning of the 2016 FFA events which will culminate at the Bozeman based State FFA Convention, March 30th – April 2nd.
