Eleven local FFA members explored agricultural careers, gained leadership and built skills for teamwork and communication at the 2018 Illinois Farm Bureau & Affiliates Youth Conference “Be Bold” April 16-17 in East Peoria.

The local students joined three hundred Illinois FFA members from 78 counties from across the state for breakout sessions and a opportunity fair plus keynote speakers Keith “Doc” Patterson and Amberley Snyder.

The conference is coordinated by the Illinois Farm Bureau & Affiliates Youth Education Committee and sponsored by Illinois Farm Bureau, GROWMARK, Inc., COUNTRY Financial, the IAA Credit Union and Prairie Farms.”
