In October of 2020, after reviewing data submitted by advisors and a lengthy discussion, the Texas FFA Association Board of Directors voted to transition the 2020 State Leadership Development Event contest to a live virtual format. The decision was made to ensure that 100% of Texas FFA chapters had the ability to participate in the 2020 state event should they advance through district and area competition.
The Texas FFA is the nation’s largest state FFA association with a membership of more than 136,000 active FFA members. FFA programs teach skills in leadership, career development, and personal growth.
