Welcome to the largest youth conference in the state of Kansas!

Each year, over 2,000 Kansas FFA members meet in Manhattan to take part in the Kansas FFA Convention and Opportunity Fair. This annual event serves as a celebration of the past year’s accomplishments, houses business sessions for chapter delegates to debate and vote on association work, and hosts the Opportunity Fair for members to explore what comes next after their their time in high school is over.
