Ag Teachers,


I have been asked to provide an e-mail periodically providing our current
number registered for the conferences. There are currently 150 spots open in
the Success Conference and 100 spots available in the Greenhand Jamboree.
Registration material and payment are due February 16, 2017.

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 3-4, 2017, at the Georgia FFA-FCCLA Center near
Covington.  Classroom posters to promote both conferences can be found on
our website : 


Greenhand Jamboree- 'Dig Your Roots'

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 $45 per person and includes 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- 'Race to Success'  

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 $45 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 Dress as well as casual
dress for the weekend. Students are encouraged to bring shoes that are
appropriate for an outdoor activity (running shoes). 


Onsite registration for both events is on Friday, March 3, from 3:30-5:00
p.m. Both conferences will conclude before lunch on Saturday, March 5. Lunch
will not be provided at the camp on Saturday. Each student attending the
conferences must have a completed Parental Consent Form and should receive a
copy of the Camp Policies. Please be prepared to turn in the Parental
Consent Forms for your students at on-site registration on March 3.  


Every person attending the Greenhand Jamboree and Success Conference must be
pre-registered. All pre-registration material is due February 16, 2017. Full
registration payment must be postmarked and sent to the state office by
February 16, 2017. In an effort to offer quality conferences, we will limit
the size of each conference. The maximum attendance is 200 students for the
Greenhand Jamboree and 250 students for the Success Conference. Registration
will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis and will only be fully
completed when payment is received by the State FFA Office. Any registration
payment received after Feb. 16 will be charged a $10 per person late fee or
may not be accepted.


Please be aware of these conference policies: 

*       No refunds will be issued. If a student cancels, that student can be
replaced with a different student 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. T-shirts for bus drivers and chaperones are $10 each. 


If you have any questions about the Greenhand Jamboree or Success
Conference, please do not hesitate to contact me. I hope to see you and your
students at the conferences.
