Wisconsin FFA holding state convention this week in Madison

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin’s largest agricultural education group is beginning its 84th state convention Monday.

The FFA is holding its annual gathering in Madison, where thousands of members will take part in a variety of programs and competitions.

Awards for the school year will be presented later in the week. The four-day convention runs through Thursday.

Membership in the state FFA is at a 29-year high, with over 19,000 students and 255 chapters.

The organization’s recent growth has been spurred by a growing list of agricultural challenges and careers in fields such as computer technology, genetic engineering, and food science.

State FFA director Cheryl Zimmerman says students are attracted by the many skills the group teaches – including teamwork, communication, and problem solving.
