UMN Agricultural Education is very busy this time of year as our campus is home to the 84th Annual MN FFA State Convention this week!
Day One of convention kicked off with a very special workshop put together by the UMN Agricultural Education faculty, staff and students: “Change Lives, Teach Ag Ed.”
This “invitation only” workshop hosted 45 of the best and brightest high school FFA students. Each student was nominated by their FFA Advisor because they have the qualities of a future Agriculture teacher.
Check out the pictures from the workshop:

Agricultural Education Sophomore, Stephen Melson, and Agricultural Education Freshman, Maria Wingert, were able to interview President Kaler for the Minnesota FFA social media websites.
Many of the Agricultural Education students are helping throughout the convention, so be sure to check out the @MNFFA twitter page for all the latest updates!
