Area Students Attend National FFA Convention in Indianapolis

This past week, from October 19th to the 23rd, 16 members of the Red Wing FFA Chapter attended the 83rd National FFA Convention.  This convention is the largest youth convention in the world held annually, with close to 56,000 students attending this year.  Students attended sessions, held at Conseco Field House, that included motivational speaker Josh Shipp, retiring addresses from the national officer team, and awards ceremonies.  The Red Wing FFA Chapter was honored by receiving a National Chapter Award at one of these awards ceremonies.  Students were also required to attend at least one leadership workshop while at National Convention.  A few of the students on the trip also attended a Lady Antebellum concert, and much of the free time was spent mingling with other FFA members from across the United States.
