2020-2021 FFA National Officer Nominees

93rd FFA National Convention & Expo

22 FFA members have moved on to the final round for national office at the 93rd National FFA Convention.

Each state FFA association can submit one individual member annually – taking part in an extensive interview process with the National FFA Officer Nominating Committee.

Candidates will be evaluated through seven rounds on five national officer competencies: character, influence, areas of knowledge, communication, and being a team player. All rounds provide candidates the opportunity to show who they are on a personal level. Specific rounds are also designed to enable candidates to show their skills in preparing and delivering speeches, facilitating workshops, advocating to stakeholders, and demonstrating how they will affect positive change within National FFA as an officer.
