On June 25, 26, and 27 FFA members from all over Maryland came to represent their chapters. The Convention’s purpose is to bring the teams that represent their chapters together and compete in different competitions to decide who from Maryland will represent the state in national competition in October.

During this convention there were workshops on how to make a difference in the local community, how to improve agriculture in Maryland, and team building between chapters.

Mrs. Pat Beachy, FFA advisor, said, “Linganore had a great group of students at the Maryland state FFA convention and had the largest group there.”

Of all the Linganore teams that were at states, few teams won first place and will go to nationals.
