2024 Convention Theme

Wednesday, April 17 – Friday, April 19


Welcome to the 96th State Convention

The 96th Annual State FFA Convention of the Missouri FFA Association is truly a special event this year. Columbia, Mo., is welcoming us to town for this special event where Missouri FFA members will be recognized and rewarded for their hard work and achievements throughout the past year. The convention theme this year is “Open the Door…” For 95 years, our organization has opened the door for students in classrooms across the state to develop and expand their knowledge and skills in the areas of applied science, technical and employability skills, while learning about our nation’s no. 1 industry: agriculture. Our organization has opend the door for members to embrace their passions with their Supervised Agricultural Experience Programs in areas such as animal agriculture, crop production, mechanics, and agriscience. Over the years, FFA has adjusted to reflect our ever-changing society and has opened the door for members to be leaders and innovators within our industry. We hope that as you represent your school and community you wear your official dress with pride. We hope that you thirst for knowledge as you “Open the Door…” to your future, embrace the opportunities that come your way, and are empowered to influence those around you about the vast agricultural industry.

Thank You to Our Convention Supporters
