FFA Nurse/FFA Counselor/Family Comfort Room      


We have on staff the week of the convention located in the VIP/Headquarters room on the lower level of the Bank of Springfield Center our very own FFA Nurse and FFA Counselor.  Both are there to serve Illinois FFA members and guests in their time of need.  If a situation arises where you need first aid or medical attention, Desiree Barrett is here to help.  If any of your FFA members have a situation where they are feeling excluded, targeted or unwelcome in any way, please know our goal is to always make every FFA member feel welcome, accepted and valued, that's why Laura Roehm is here to help serve FFA members.  If you are in need of a counselor or someone to help create a safe space to help with concerns, please see our Counselor in the VIP/Headquarters room on the lower level of the Bank of Springfield Center.  We hope you, your members and all guests will not need either of these services, but in case you do, please know we are here to serve. 


The Illinois FFA Convention will once again this year provide a Family Comfort Room in the lower level of the convention hall in ROOM B3. The Family Comfort Room is designed for all of our agriculture teachers who choose to bring their children and all of our families that attend the convention as well.  It offers a quiet location to bring babies for feeding, changing, and naps or a place for little ones to play and just be.  The Family Comfort Room is supported by the Illinois Foundation FFA. They say it takes a village to raise a child, join us as we raise our families together, experiencing FFA from the youngest of ages.

State FFA Degree Photo and Seating      

State FFA Degree Photo and Seating

NEW this year!!  We will be taking a photo of all of the 2022 State FFA Degree Recipients on the steps of the Old State Capital at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 15, 2022, prior to the 4th General Session when State FFA Degrees are presented.    Please click here to RSVP for the photo, we would like to get an idea of how many State FFA Degree recipients will be present for the photo.  Please just fill out one per FFA Chapter and advisors just let us know how many of your recipients will be present for the photo.  


ALSO, AGAIN THIS YEAR!!  The seating for both the State FFA Degree and American FFA Degree recipients will be on the Mezzanine level (the upper level) of the Bank of Springfield Center.


Stage Appearance Cards

*** RETURNING this year! In your convention packets, you will not only receive the stage appearance document that details what sessions your chapters will appear on stage during the convention, you will also receive Stage Appearance Cards.  Each card will indicate what session your chapter and/or students appear on stage, what award you/they are winning, when to report backstage, as well as section number and what order to line up in once they arrive backstage.  Please take notice to keep track of your stage appearance cards and delegate them to your chapter members as they represent your FFA chapter.  If you have Stage Appearance Cards in your packet, please send them with your members when you send them backstage.  

In previous years, we have asked you to remind them of why they are going backstage.  What award they are to receive? What Section?  The Stage Appearance Cards will help with that, DO NOT forget to send them with the STAGE APPEARANCE CARDS!  THANK YOU! 

ALSO NOTE, if for ANY reason your chapter or winners name doesn’t get said when it should have been or we made an error - please have them let the backstage crew know IMMEDIATELY, we will do our best to correct the mistake and get them/your chapter the intended recognition.  Our goal of course is to be error free, but if and when it happens, the sooner we know about it, the sooner we can do something about it. 

Alumni Merchandise Booth at the 94th Annual Illinois FFA State Convention, the Illinois FFA Alumni will have their FFA Merchandise Booth at the State FFA Convention on June 14 - 16, 2022. The booth will be located in the main lobby by the registration area. Be sure to stop by and get your FFA Convention T-Shirt, IL FFA Hats, Glitter Shirts, different types of FFA T-Shirts/Sweatshirts/Sweatpants, FFA blankets, ties/scarfs, pantyhose, vintage items and so much more!
