Student Leaders Prepare for the 96th National FFA Convention & Expo in Indianapolis

FFA members and supporters from across the country will celebrate agriculture and agricultural education next week during the 96th National FFA Convention & Expo in Indianapolis.

This time-honored tradition, hosted by the city of Indianapolis, will be held next week, Nov. 1-4.

More than 65,000+ FFA members from the U.S., Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands are expected to participate in the event.

Those attending will participate in general convention sessions hosted at Lucas Oil Stadium, be inspired by their peers as they are recognized for their accomplishments and hear from keynote speakers. Convention attendees will also explore various career paths at the National FFA Expo in the Indiana Convention Center, participate in career success tours, and more.

Convention events will begin on Wednesday, Nov. 1, when the Expo opens for all attendees to explore various career pathways in agriculture and attend leadership workshops. The opening general session, featuring Juan Bendana, will be held in Lucas Oil Stadium at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 1

The fun continues with several entertainment opportunities, including a Wednesday night concert featuring Lainey Wilson and special guest Dillon Carmichael, and rodeos on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

FFA members and advisors can also take their skills to the next level in student and teacher workshops — hearing from industry leaders, motivational speakers and more — and watch members discuss their agricultural projects on the new Student Showcase Stage. 

Service has always been a part of the FFA motto, and it will be front and center at this year’s event as members participate in service projects at the convention center and various sites in Indianapolis.
