National FFA Convention- 2017 Info Below, 2018 info coming soon!
Update: as of the July Deadline, we have no members signed up to go. The National Convention Trip is on hold at this point until there is further interest.
For 2017 Bruce will be traveling to Indianapolis, IN for National FFA convention from Tuesday, Oct. 24th-Saturday October 28th.
Download the application and return it via the dropbox at the bottom of this page. Deadline: Saturday July 1st. (Some priority will be given to applications received by this date)
Members attending will be responsible for their share of the trip cost including registration, event tickets, lodging, travel, parking and any other group expenses. Students will be responsible for all food expenses on their own. Before the trip Bruce FFA will be collecting a $400 deposit per member which may be paid through sponsorships, fundraising, chapter fund allocation, cash, or any combination of these. Any extra from the funds received after the final costs are totaled will be reimbursed to the student if paid cash, or reallocated to other members, if paid in sponsorships/fundraising. If the trip costs exceed the collected amount and there are no extra scholarship or fundraising funds, students will be responsible for the balance. Submitting an application implies a commitment for payment if chosen to go. In past years, Bruce FFA has travelled alone, or in vans with one additional chapter. This year we may travel on our own, or may go on a chartered coach bus with several other chapters depending on cost and the preference of those members going.
