Watford City FFA Chapter Attends Nationals
December 4, 2019 | View PDF
Each year, in Indianapolis, Indiana, thousands of FFA members attend the national convention and expo. We left October 27 and got back home late on November 2. The Watford chapter has been fortunate enough to make the trip to Indiana every other year and the last one was in 2017, meaning this year eight of our students along with two advisors were able to travel to Indiana together.
All of us learned and experienced so many new and interesting things. We attended sessions along with 65,000 other FFA members and met new friends. Our trip also consisted of a lot of exciting activities such as segway tours, exploring the Cincinnati Zoo, going to the Indy Scream Park, and visiting the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the National FFA Center. The list just keeps going on.
The chapter was also able to participate in the National Days of Service. This is a great way to help serve people and better the world, which is a large part of who we are as FFA. The Watford chapter along with a couple of other chapters from different states were able to help clean and sort at Big Car Collaborative in Indianapolis.
This trip was truly a once in a lifetime one, to say the least. A huge thank you to everyone who donated and helped in any way to make our trip possible!
