The Montana FFA Foundation’s annual Ag Expo kicks off Thursday
The Montana FFA Ag Expo is once again upon us and will be in Bozeman again this year. The annual event put on by the Montana FFA Foundation is one of the largest gatherings of FFA members, advisors, families and supporters each year. It is only rivaled by the state convention, which will be in Great Falls next spring.
Montana State University is the host site with events starting Thursday November 10th and concluding Saturday November 12th. The event is expected to attract over 1700 FFA members making it the largest Ag Days in Montana’s history. Since the inception, business support has been tremendous and this year is no different with Montana John Deere dealers being the key sponsors for this educational experience. Students will have the chance to compete in 26 different CDE (career development events) competitions, participate in leadership workshops, network during a career fair, attended a banquet and listen to keynote speaker Stuart Ellis-Myers, better known as “Twitchy”. According to their poster,
“Stuart Ellis-Myers is the world’s only Post Pandemic funny, inspirational keynote speaker living with anxiety, depression and non-swearing Tourette Syndrome. Stuart has overcome countless Unstoppable challenges to become a hilarious mental health to mental wealth content-rich, ‘Robin Williams living with an inspirational Twitch.”
As you can image, an event of this size requires many volunteers and there is still time for you to sign up to help. Click HERE and you will go directly to the signup form. Montana FFA consists of 109 chapters and over 6000 members making it the largest intercurricular organization in the state. Many of these members just returned from the National FFA Convention and Montana brought home many awards. This is your chance to work directly with our states and nations future leaders. FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of its members by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agriculture education.
