State Convention for the Oregon FFA was held March 22-25 on Oregon State's Campus. We mobilized our department and some Collegiate FFA Students to host a convention for 2000+ people. Here are some highlights.
We were in the Corvallis Gazette Times. This is my favorite picture from the paper. This was at the Animal Science Teaching Pavilion where students packed 70,000+ pounds of food as part of the Food for All campaign.
We took a picture of the students on the OSU football field spelling out FFA. Hannah took the "Real" picture, but one of our students snapped this one with her phone.
Speaking of Hannah, she takes the best photos. She is an OSU student and the official convention photographer.
There was a Harlem Shake video made. If the embedded video doesn't work, check out YouTube for "Oregon FFA Harlem Shake"
And there was a published "FFA Times". Read Friday's.
The Ag Ed Club (which I am proud to advise) successfully ran a workshop and a booth in the career show. They had students answer the question "Why Teach Ag?" on a post it note. This is our board.
Convention marks the end of full time student teaching for our master's cohort. They get a week "off" to move back to Corvallis before finishing up with us winter term. It was fun to watch these ladies be FFA Advisors during convention. Oregon FFA has a bright future!
Since I worked all day from Friday to Monday to help make the convention run smoothly, I am spending today at home to check the mail, do some laundry, grocery shop, cook and just generally cram an entire weekend into a Tuesday. It is spring break (Technically) but I will be back at work tomorrow because a new quarter starts on Monday and I have to be ready for new classes.
If you were there, what was the most memorable part of the 85th Oregon FFA Convention for you?
