National FFA Organization has announced the #SpeakAg Showcase initiative is back, and it’s time to let your state’s agricultural story shine.

Seeds of Innovation
Remember the excitement that buzzed in the air during the 95th National FFA Convention & Expo? That was just the beginning. Now, the canvas is yours, and your state’s unique agricultural narrative is the masterpiece waiting to be painted. Building upon the success of the pilot program, the #SpeakAg Showcase beckons all FFA members to step into the spotlight.

Lights, Camera, Agriculture!
Imagine capturing the essence of your state’s agriculture in a symphony of visuals. The #SpeakAg Showcase is your stage, and your tools are videos, photographs, presentations, and more. The goal? To craft a mesmerizing portrayal of your state’s agricultural identity in a 1:00 to 2:30 minute promotion.

The Symphony Unveiled
Submission day looms on the horizon: Tuesday, October 3rd. As the sun sets on that day, your creations, filled with your sweat and passion, will be in the hands of the judges. Your task is to weave together three state-based agricultural facts, non-copyrighted music that harmonizes with your story, and at least one narration that resonates in the heart of every viewer.

Beyond the Horizon
The anticipation builds as the calendar pages turn. The 96th National FFA Convention & Expo promises not only the allure of gathering, but also the electrifying winners’ announcement. Did your video capture the essence of your state’s agricultural soul? Did your creativity and knowledge of agriculture shine through the lens? The spotlight awaits the winners as they stand proudly on the stage of recognition.

Mastering the Craft
As you embark on this creative journey, you’re not only showcasing your state’s agriculture but also honing a variety of event-specific skills. From developing project plans to diving into multimedia wizardry, you’re expanding your horizons and building talents that will serve you well in the future.

The Brushstrokes of Respect
In this artistic endeavor, there are guidelines to follow. The FFA logo is your brushstroke of belonging, while adhering to Brand Guidelines ensures your work carries the respect it deserves. Your composition should feature three agricultural facts, non-copyrighted melodies, and the resonance of narration. Creativity, agricultural knowledge, and state representation will be your guiding stars.

Weaving the Tapestry
The #SpeakAg Showcase initiative is more than just a platform. It’s a canvas for your agricultural passion, a stage for your creativity, and a gateway to recognition. With your skills, your knowledge, and your artistry, you’re contributing to the tapestry of American agriculture, enriching the story that binds the nation.

So, gather your clips, your photographs, your narratives. Craft a symphony of agriculture that resonates with the hearts of those who watch. Let your submission be a brushstroke on the canvas of America’s fields. Submit your story before October 3rd, and let the world see your state’s story.
