2022 North Carolina State FFA Convention

The 2022 NC FFA State Convention is June 21-23!



Please visit judgingcard.com to register for state convention. Waivers should be completed for every student attending convention on theaet.com. All students, advisors and guests should be registered as a general convention attendee in Judging Card. Students participating in the delegate process, competitive events, or leadership workshops should also be registered in their respective areas. This means student names may be entered multiple times in the registration process.

*New this year!* Students advancing from regional competitions MUST be registered for the state competition by advisors. You must register these students to attend the convention and you will register them to participate in their respective competitions.

Registration is $20 for each participant; this includes advisors, students, and guests. Parents of members may attend any one session for free; but are required to pay the full registration fee if they wish to attend more than one session. Registrations are non-refundable once the registration form has been submitted.

Please have your hotel accommodations booked prior to registering for state convention. We must collect this information to assist the Raleigh Convention & Visitors Bureau in determining the economic impact. This information will be collected in judgingcard.com.

Gator Wars will be conducted at convention this year! All registered teams will compete in a qualifying event during the convention before moving on to the final round.

The deadline to register for convention CDEs/LDEs is Wednesday, June 1. After June 1, no CDE/LDE registrations will be allowed, but all-access passes may still be purchased for $25. If you would still like to register your chapter to attend the state convention after the June 1 deadline, please email Sarah Williams. Printed programs and materials are only guaranteed for those registered by June 1.

You will receive an invoice for convention fees after online registration is closed on June 1, 2022.
