Students who attended were Veronica Dvorak, Alex Nielsen, Heather Kuntz, Lane Herberholz, Kara Stegner, Alex Witte, Hannah Nordby, Erin Ehlis, Taylor Hewson, Kennedy Kirschemann, Ty Nordby, Kjersten Stegner, Mason Petri, and Emily Ehlis. The students had a very educational and enjoyable week of contests, workshops, and speakers. Of course it wasn’t all work, they were able to go to two dances, the family fun center complete with go carts and mini golf, the student union with bowling and billiards, and just hanging out with their friends and making new ones. We had Kara Stegner run for a state office this year, but unfortunately she was not elected. She worked very hard and deserves recognition none the less. Two of the students, Alex Nielsen and Kara Stegner, also received their state degrees this year at the state convention. I would like to congratulate all of the students on a job well done and thank them for all of their hard work.

The ND FFA added a new feature to their website this year and if you would like to check out any of the sessions from this year’s convention you may stream them at home. Visit for more info.
