Started in 2004, the Minnesota FFA Hall of Fame is a collaborative effort between the Minnesota FFA Association, Minnesota FFA Alumni, and Minnesota FFA Foundation. A selection committee consisting of FFA members, alumni, agricultural educators and foundation representatives select the final inductees.
The Hall of Fame recognizes individuals who have been influential and supportive of Minnesota FFA and who have demonstrated a high level of service and longstanding commitment to agriculture, agribusiness, and/or education in agriculture.
The inductees are formally announced and recognized at the Minnesota FFA Alumni Association Annual Conference and have a formal induction ceremony during the State FFA Convention.
The Minnesota FFA Foundation through its Star Partners Program provides resources that support the FFA Hall of Fame program. For more information about programs and funding opportunities visit www.mnffafoundation.org.
