We are selecting presenters to deliver workshops at the 91st National FFA Convention & Expo in Indianapolis, IN. Workshop presenters can either present to students and/or teachers. Presenters will deliver at least one workshop, but can present the same workshop up to three times. The curriculum of the workshop is to be created by the presenter, and content must align with at least one component of the FFA mission or be relevant to the agriculture industry. Workshops are available Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of the week of Convention. 

Submitted workshop applications are selected based on quality of content, and we’re open to unique workshop topics. But, need ideas for topics? At the 90th National FFA Convention & Expo, students said they’d like to see workshops about motivating chapter members, plants, animals, new technology, how to obtain and engage sponsors, diversity, money and time management, benefits of FFA membership, leadership training and self-empowerment. Teachers said they would like to see classroom resources, STEM, classroom management, animal science/animal care, utilizing technology in the classroom, aquaculture/natural resources, lesson plan ideas, connecting with different learning levels, agricultural mechanics, CDEs, tips on recruiting alumni members, agribusiness, grant writing, etc.
