Monday, June 29, 2020

In what is one of the largest activities among Indiana, as well as America's youth, it was announced this past Friday that the National Future Farmers of America Organization will hold its national convention in October virtually instead of meeting in Indianapolis due to continued concerns revolving around the coronavirus outbreak.

The Indianapolis-based FFA announced Friday the decision to make the event virtual is due “to the many challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic.” The convention that features keynote speakers, concerts and workshops was slated to occur Oct. 28-31.

According to the Indianapolis Business Journal, the FFA brought more than 68,000 people, mostly high school students, to the Hoosier State capital last year with an economic impact of $38 million.
