Now that nearly 55,000 FFA members in blue corduroy jackets have made their way back home, the National FFA Organization and
the city of Indianapolis can celebrate the record-breaking success of the 81st National FFA Convention.
We are well aware that this magnificent event was only made possible through the support and resources of the Indianapolis
Local Organizing Committee, our convention sponsors and the citizens of central Indiana.
We offer our sincere gratitude to our convention-presenting sponsors—Lilly Endowment Inc., Dow AgroSciences, Elanco
Indiana Farm Bureau.
The city of Indianapolis has once again proven its ability to put on a world-class event. We are profoundly grateful.
