The Kansas FFA Association continues to monitor the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Our first responsibility remains the health and safety of everyone involved with our organization – including students, advisors, chaperones, stakeholders and staff.
In accordance with the Kansas Department of Health and the Environment, Kansas State University and the Centers for Disease Control, we are following protocols established for FFA events in the next eight weeks. This includes the postponement of local and district FFA events, such as CDEs and banquets. This also includes the Kansas State Career Development Events, hosted by the Kansas State University College of Agriculture.
Kansas FFA Convention Update
The Kansas FFA Association executive committee met recently and voted to proceed with a condensed, virtual state FFA convention in order for members and chapters who submitted awards applications to be recognized for those efforts. That would include proficiency awards, national chapter awards and Kansas Star award winners. We will also honor those students who have completed the requirements and are due to receive the State FFA Degree. This setting will also provide the backdrop for the State FFA Association to conduct its annual business, including the election of a new set of state FFA officers, as well as bidding farewell to the officers who have completed their year of service in 2019-2020.
This event is scheduled to take place during the traditional dates of State FFA Convention, May 27-29, 2020. Be watching social media and email for updates and details on how to watch and participate in this exciting showcase of Kansas FFA members.
More information will be released as available.
