The 91st annual Texas FFA Convention recorded approximately 13,000 members and guests. Members of the state’s largest agricultural youth leadership organization spent the week attending leadership workshops, participating in events and activities, being recognized for their achievements, and serving as the legislative body for the Texas FFA Association. The Texas FFA is the nation’s largest state FFA association with a membership of more than 130,000.
