Welcome to the 85th annual Texas FFA State Convention in Dallas, Texas, presented by Justin Boots and Farm Credit.
Throughout history, Dallas has been home to successful businesses, sports teams, and the nation’s largest state fair – the State Fair of Texas. They have been limitless with their goals and aspirations, just like this year the Texas FFA has been limitless in growth and achievements. Interestingly enough, Dallas was also home to the very first Texas FFA State Convention.
While the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex is the largest metropolitan area in the state, it is also home to the convention of the largest state association in the National FFA Organization. Since the last convention in Dallas, the membership has grown by more than 30,000. This year, the Texas FFA is represented by more than 95,000 members.
The limitless achievements of students though their Supervised Agricultural Experiences and other FFA related accomplishments will be recognized on stage. This year more than $2 million in scholarships will be awarded.
This week offers everyone limitless possibilities to grow as a person, create many new friendships and have an unforgettable time. From listening to motivational speakers to hearing the Texas FFA Chorus as they display their limitless talents and from listening to retiring addresses and electing the new State President, members, advisors, sponsors and guests will be a part of an event that will inspire you to be limitless.
During this week, see how the Texas FFA has a positive influence in the lives of the more than 95,000 FFA members. Throughout each session, we hope you are inspired to take what you’ve learned and apply it in your homes and communities. We, as a State Officer Team, challenge you to look beyond adversity, break the barriers and live a life that is limitless.
