Washington FFA students attended the 212 Degrees and 360 Degrees Leadership Conferences Feb. 10-11 in Randle, Wash.
The conference based on 212 degrees — the temperature at which water boils — focuses on taking students to the “boiling point of leadership,” according to a Washington FFA press release.
“At 211 degrees water is extremely hot, but just one more degree gets us to the next level,” the press release states.
The two-day conference was focused on student development and helped FFA members become aware of their personal growth. FFA members attended sessions on making positive decisions and setting specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and time (SMART) goals.
360 degree conference takes students “full circle” in terms of chapter leadership. The two-day conference focuses on the importance of influence and how to become an influential leader. Students conducted chapter needs assessments, crafted influence plans for their chapters and developed strategies.
More than 8,000 students across the country will participate in a 212 Degrees or 360 Degrees leadership conference, an activity of the National FFA Organization, sponsored by Syngenta.
