The Greenhand Jamboree and Success Conference are wonderful opportunities
for high school students to develop leadership skills, and will be held in
conjunction on *March 6-7, 2015*, at the Georgia FFA-FCCLA Center near
Covington.


*Greenhand Jamboree*

The Greenhand Jamboree, presented by members of the state FFA officer team,
is for 9th grade members and explores what the FFA has to offer. The
conference fee is* $40 *per person and includes conference materials,
meals, lodging, a t-shirt and an official FFA manual. The students will
participate in a variety of activities to get them excited about being an
FFA member, including an FFA Quiz competition. The winner will receive
their choice of a free FFA jacket or a $50 Summer Leadership Camp
scholarship. Students should plan to wear casual dress for the entire
conference.


*Success Conference*

The Success Conference is an opportunity for 10-12th grade FFA members. The
objective of this conference will be to focus on personal development,
character, decision-making, and dealing with peer pressure. The program
will be conducted by members of the state FFA officer team. The
registration cost for the Success Conference is* $40 *per person and
includes meals, lodging, a conference workbook, and a conference t-shirt.
Students attending the Success Conference will need to bring *Official FFA

Please be aware of these new conference policies:

·        *No refunds will be issued**.* Please keep this policy in mind as
you request checks for the final payment due at registration. If a student
cancels, that student can be replaced with a different student at any time
for the same conference. Students registered for the Success Conference
cannot be replaced with students attending the Greenhand Jamboree and vice
versa.

·        There will be no lodging/meals cost for non-advisor
chaperones. *Chapters
are encouraged to bring a chaperone for each gender and have a ratio of one
adult per 10 students.* As always, there is no cost for bus drivers.
