Statewide FFA convention gets underway today at Purdue

The FFA is ready to meet again for the 83rd time.

Purdue is hosting the annual statewide conference beginning today.

Indiana FFA head Casey Conley says with the agricultural industry modernizing at such a fast pace, students will think bigger this year.

She says there will be a bit more of a global focus.

Conley says the organization will sell clay bracelets with the phrase “I Believe” on them.

A portion of the proceeds will be used to bring clean drinking water to parts of Africa.

The State Convention runs through Wednesday.
