Because of questions of coronavirus metrics, and the uncertainty of Whitman County’s phase in Governor Jay Inslee’s reopening plan during early May, it was decided earlier this spring to hold the 91st annual Washington FFA convention on-line. However, according to new Washington FFA Executive Director Jason Bullock, the virtual convention will look very different than last year’s event. He noted state officers, FFA staff and volunteers have worked very hard to pay homage to what a traditional convention looks like.

“We’ll be broadcasting live from within Beasley.  So while we won’t have the 3,000-4,000 FFA members, guests and sponsors and all there in person, a small group of staff and state officers and the Beasley crew will be there to help us broadcast convention live which will be a mix of prerecorded segments and live segments.”

The 91st Washington FFA Convention runs Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Click Here to learn more.
