Oklahoma Farm Bureau was proud to support Oklahoma’s agricultural youth as a title sponsor of the Oklahoma FFA Association's 91st State FFA Convention and Career Show May 2 through May 3 in downtown Oklahoma City. 

With more than 10,000 FFA members, advisers and guests in attendance, the two-day convention featured member and chapter award presentations, leadership and career development workshops, a career show and more.

“Investing in our state’s young people is one of Oklahoma Farm Bureau’s most important endeavors,” said Monica Wilke, OKFB executive director. “As a former member, I’ve both experienced and witnessed the positive impact FFA has on students.”

A longtime supporter of Oklahoma FFA, OKFB believes in the organization’s commitment to preparing and cultivating the state’s next generation of leaders. 

“Farm Bureau is always looking to recruit leaders who know how to serve,” Wilke said, speaking to FFA members. “When asked to support Oklahoma FFA, our answer always will unequivocally be yes.”

FFA is a national organization dedicated to youth leadership development through agricultural education. The Oklahoma FFA Association has 357 chapters with more 27,000 high school members. Learn more about Oklahoma FFA at www.okffa.org.
