Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â An booth for the state of Idaho was constructed by the North Idaho FFA District for the Hall of States at the National FFA Convention. This opportunity was awarded to the North Idaho District at the 2011 Idaho FFA State Leadership Conference in April after winning the Hall of Districts contest. This involved the creation of a small display which best represented the FFA and agriculture for the district.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â The Hall of States Booth was created by North Idaho District Officers and then shipped to Indianapolis for the National FFA Convention. It contained different information including information about the state of Idaho and its agriculture. The booth also illustrated current Idaho FFA information including staff, State Officers and Career Development Event winners as well as important highlights in Idaho FFA History.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â The Idaho Booth was open throughout the three day career show that accompanies the National FFA Convention. It was manned by FFA members, officers and advisors from throughout the state of Idaho. The booth was made possible through the financial support and item donations of several businesses and organizations including Simplot, the Idaho Grain Producers, the Idaho Beef Council, the Amalgamated Sugar Company, the USA Dry Pea & Lentil Council and the Idaho Dairy Products Commission.Â
