The FFA Rolls into the First Day of State Convention!

Welcome to the 96th Annual State Convention! 2,188 FFA members join together at the Utah State University located in Logan Utah. We bussed up Thursday leaving the high school at 6am. We arrived around 9. We begin the day with a workshop. Learning from the school ambassadors learning about the many options Utah state has to offer including every agriculture opportunity available. After this workshop we went downstairs to support the Creed Speakers, the creed speaking contest is when each student presents the FFA creed written by E.M. Tiffany which consists of 5 paragraphs.The creed speakers from our school were Mattie Fowkes and Myah Cobbly. Who both did very well, Mattie won the creed speaking contest and Myah took 2nd. We had lunch and then attended the 1st session and then had time to go to the hotel. After we checked in at the hotel we turned loose to find ourselves dinner. There’s many food places around the hotel within walking distance for dinner. We met back on the bus at 6:15 pm to head back over to the. Convention center to attend the 2nd session. Here we sit and watch the 2nd session and it ends at about 9. After the second session we load the bus again and head back to the hotel to get ready for the tailgate party. We then load the buses at 9:30 and make our way to the tailgate. We stayed there until it ended at 11 then made our way back to the hotels to end our 1st day of the 96th Annual State Convention!
