The primary concern of Minnesota FFA is the health and safety of student participants and associated partners and volunteers. As the situation with novel coronavirus/COVID-19 is continually evolving, FFA staff monitors updates and recommendations from health and school officials on state and federal levels. As restrictions on group size, travel and personal safety change, FFA staff works to apply these recommendations to plans for current and future events and, if necessary, to modify or cancel programs that are unable to operate within the most up-to-date guidelines.
This page will serve as a resource for updates about affected programs, modifications or cancellations.
Affected and Adapted Programs and Events (Updated September 17, 2020):
On August 10, 2020, the Minnesota FFA Student and Adult Board of Directors voted to
prohibit in-person FFA Career and Leadership Development Event qualifying events
prior to November 1st. Virtual qualifying events are currently being organized and will
begin in October.
Minnesota FFA staff remain focused on recommendations regarding the health and safety of students and continue to explore opportunities to engage students virtually, in appropriate sized groups/settings or on potentially rescheduled dates. Until further notice event registration systems will not open until Minnesota FFA has the ability to confidently plan to execute the event. Should changes occur after an event registration is made public, FFA staff will work directly with registered students and chapters to communicate cancellations or adaptations.
