Acres of innovation, education and just plain fun are on display this week at the 89th National FFA Convention & Expo. Today, delegates from across the country crowded into the Indiana Convention Center to get hands-on experience and witness demonstrations from some of the biggest names in agribusiness. Universities were also on hand to showcase their agriculture and science programs and thousands of FFA members explored the aisles in between the official convention sessions.
The afternoon session highlighted some of the musical talents of the FFA delegates, as well as awards and an inspiring speech from National FFA officer Abbey Gretsch. Gretsch urged the crowd to be present and engaged with life because "when you are present in your journey, your journey becomes an adventure." She finished with a visual reminder to "find the joy in the journey."
Speaking of finding things.... can you find the one FFA delegate smiling and waving at or camera in the photo below?
