The 93rd National FFA Convention and Expo may have been virtual this year, but numbers indicate that many members across the country enjoyed the event.
The number of viewers and participants totaled well over 217,000 people.
Due to COVID-19, National FFA made the decision back in late June to host the largest student event virtually this year instead of in-person.
The event kicked off Tuesday of last week, and students had the opportunity to attend events on a virtual platform.
Convention attendees had a chance to view the live general sessions on RFD-TV, The Cowboy Channel, and streaming on FFA.org., where they saw peers from across the country receiving recognition for their hard work and heard from this year’s national FFA officer team.
“The virtual national FFA convention and expo was a great success,” says Mandy Hazlett, associate director of convention and events for National FFA. “While it might be different this year, we are thrilled to have offered experiences similar to what our members would have enjoyed during an in-person event.”
She has good news for those who registered and didn’t get to see everything they wanted. Students will still have all access to all this great content and videos through the end of the year.
“That means if they didn’t get it all covered in three days, they have time to go back,” Hazlett adds.
