State FFA Convention

The 2010 Illinois State FFA Convention was held on June 14-16. Illinois FFA members from all over the state met in Springfield. There they attended sessions, workshops, and toured the capitol. During sessions we listened to our 2009-2010 retiring officer’s addresses, learned about leadership, watched proficiency awards, and saw some awesome FFA Talent. The Seneca FFA Chapter was ranked number one in the state, while the Newark FFA Chapter came in second.
After sessions were over delegates met to talk about things they wanted to change or do to improve FFA. On Wednesday night they elected the 2010-2011 State Officers. Among them are John Edgar, President; Jake Ekstrand, Vice President; Morgan Ott, Reporter; Cody Gill, Secretary; Jeffrey Barnes, Treasurer.
State Convention was a lot of fun, and everyone is looking forward to going again next year. It was a chance to make new friends, learn about leadership, and make a lot of incredible memories.
