This year's state FFA convention will be a pre-recorded, produced event that will take place over the course of three evenings - June 30 through July 2. We still intend to give out the same awards and recognition as we have during previous conventions, which means we still need sponsorship dollars to purchase plaques and give prize and participation awards.
Sponsors will be recognized throughout convention with video spotlights and social media shout-outs. The FFA Foundation staff are also organizing a virtual trade show that will allow sponsors to interact with students online.
"Students will be in their homes, watching with their families," said Sheldon McKinney, executive director of the Kentucky FFA Foundation. "I believe we're going to have thousands of more eyes on convention than we typically do. We're working really hard to make it an excellent, top notch event."
