Happy Monday (and National Championship Day) Ag Teachers!


The Greenhand Jamboree and Success Conference are wonderful opportunities
for high school students to develop their potential for premier leadership
and personal growth. The conferences will be held in conjunction on March
2-3, 2018, at the Georgia FFA-FCCLA Center near Covington.  


Greenhand Jamboree- 'Find your Element'

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 $50 per person and includes meals, lodging, a workbook, 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- 'Elevate'  

The Success Conference is an opportunity for 10-12th grade FFA members.
Conducted by members of the state FFA officer team, this conference is
focused around personal development, character, decision-making, and dealing
with peer pressure. The registration cost for the Success Conference is $50
per person and includes meals, lodging, a workbook, and a t-shirt. Students
attending the Success Conference will need to bring Official FFA Dress as
well as casual dress for the weekend. 


Onsite registration for both events is on Friday, March 2, from 3:30-5:00
p.m. Both conferences will conclude before lunch on Saturday, March 3. 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 2.  


Each person attending the Greenhand Jamboree and Success Conference must be
pre-registered. All pre-registration material is due February 15, 2018. Full
registration payment must be postmarked and sent to the state office by
February 15, 2018. In an effort to offer quality conferences, we will limit
the size of each conference. The maximum attendance is 250 students for the
Greenhand Jamboree and 300 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. 15 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.
