ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Ten members of the Lone Tree FFA chapter traveled to Indianapolis for the 91st National FFA Convention and Expo.

This event is held annually, and this year hit record attendance of 69,944 FFA members, advisors and guests from across the country, as well as Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

As the streets were flooded with blue corduroy, members had many exciting opportunities and experiences throughout their time in Indianapolis.

Students left Wednesday morning, with FFA Advisor Bridget Mahoney, and five other FFA chapters from around the district.

When they got to Indianapolis, members attended the annual concert held in Lucas Oil Stadium where Garth Brooks entertained more than 25,000 FFA members.

On Thursday morning, members went to one of three opening sessions. Here, members heard from keynote speaker, Kyle Scheele. They also heard from the National FFA Band and Chorus, opening remarks from national officers, and listened to national FFA advisor, Steve Brown.

On their first full day in Indianapolis, members had the opportunity to attend the career fair and expo.

Here, members talked to hundreds of business and industry representatives about the latest and greatest technologies in agriculture. They were able to network and talk to colleges about the different programs available to future students.
