Activities Above the Local Level

The AGWSR FFA strives to offer its members with opportunities above the chapter level.  Here are a few things we have done recently.

212 Leadership Conference

We pay for any freshman or sophomore wishing to attend the 212 leadership conference.  Here Alexis, Chance, Josh, Lukas, Austin, Tryston, Joseph, Riley, Tyler, and Tanner pose during a session at 212.


 

National FFA Convention

The National FFA Convention is an excellent way to learn and view new things.  Here Tanner, Tori, Ryleigh, Whitanie, Liam, Joe, Riley, Sawyer, and Rachel pose at the Indianapolis Speedway.


 

Washington Leadership Conference

The chapter was excited to help cover the costs for five members to attend the Washington Leadership Conference.  Tanner, Trevor, Lily, Tori, Riley, Kenzie, and Josh were this years' participants.

National Soils Contest

The chapter competes in many different CDE's, here, a few of our chapter's members practice in a pit in Oklahoma City, OK at the National Land Judging competition.
