Over 3,000 FFA members and advisors gather each year at the Gatlinburg Convention Center to participate in four days full of workshops, sessions, and Career and Leadership Development Events. Students also interact with universities, businesses, and industry leaders throughout the Career and Trade Show.

Tennessee FFA State Convention allows students to create lifelong memories in an environment that builds community and leadership skills. Keynote speakers and state officer retiring addresses aim to inspire these young agricultural leaders during the lively and upbeat sessions. This year’s convention theme was “Piece By Piece” and focused on reuniting Tennessee FFA members after the absence of events due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education. Nationally, there are 760,113 FFA members, aged 12-21. The Tennessee FFA Association is comprised of more than 26,000 members from over 220 high school chapters, 7 middle school chapters, and 8 collegiate chapters across the state of Tennessee.
